Sheboygan Q Mart Stores Break Fundraising Goals To Help Kids with Muscular Dystrophy

SHEBOYGAN, Wis., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- In these current economic times, many people are trying to cut back their spending, which often means giving less to charities. However, the employees of the 21 Q Mart Marketplace convenience stores in the Sheboygan area are committed to raising money to support the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

Nowhere was this more apparent than at the CITGO Q Mart on 1006 Geele Ave. in Sheboygan. After launching their Shamrocks Against Dystrophy fundraiser, along with the other 20 Q Mart stores, employees went above and beyond by selling paper shamrocks and organizing additional contests and raffles which helped them raise more than $5,600.

"The annual Shamrocks Against Dystrophy program is the most exciting time of the year for our station," said Joann Brock, manager of the Geele Ave. CITGO Q Mart and a Q Mart employee for 28 years. "This year we had a terrific response from area businesses who purchased plaques in the store and donated prizes for our raffle."

"Each year, we try to have fun with the promotion and, as a result, we get a terrific response from the local community. We are proud to say that with the support of the community, our station will be able to send seven children to an MDA summer camp this year," Brock said. Over the past six years, the Geele Ave. CITGO Q Mart alone has raised more than $31,000 and sent 38 children to an MDA summer camp.

In coordination with local petroleum distributor Quality State Oil, all 21 Q Mart stores across the Sheboygan area raised more than $18,000 this year through CITGO Petroleum Corporation's partnership with the MDA Shamrocks Against Dystrophy program, enough to send 22 children to an MDA summer camp and exceeding last year's efforts by more than $7,500. This year, each Q Mart st
