Stripes College Scholarship Fund to benefit local college-bound students

Obtaining a college education will now be easier for students within the Stripes operating market areas, thanks to the Stripes College Scholarship Fund, a month-long program underway by Stripes Convenience Stores.

Stripes began its second in-store fundraising campaign, inviting customers to participate by donating as little as $1. In appreciation for their contribution, customers will receive a recognition cut-out that will be displayed in the store, along with a free 12-ounce Slush Monkey coupon and a buy-one-get-one-free regular-size Snickers candy bar.

In 2014, the Stripes College Scholarship Fund helped 18 Victoria College students.

“Last year, we raised $545,000 to award 545 local college students each with a $1,000 scholarship, thanks to the help of our passionate Stripes team members and generous customers,” said Eduardo Pereda, vice president of Marketing for Stripes LLC.

All proceeds raised from the in-store campaign will be distributed to students in the 2015-16 academic year. Stripes is underwriting all administrative costs to run the scholarship program.

The month-long in-store fundraising campaign will be held at all Stripes locations throughout the Stripes operating area and will end Dec. 31. The scholarship awards will be selected and managed by the participating community colleges and universities enrolled in the program.
