Last week Wawa kicked off its Independence Day celebrations in Philadelphia with a special Hoagie Day - an afternoon full of singing, food and thanking our troops!
That morning over 200 Wawa associates came together to make more than 4.5 tons of hoagie to feed event attendees! Thousands of people came out to eat and write messages of thanks to the troops at the Liberty USO tent!
Wawa celebrated an amazing two weeks of fundraising for the USO by giving us a check for $100,000! The campaign isn’t over yet- be sure to stop by your closest Wawa and drop in some change for the USO - maybe we can double that!
