Quarles Petroleum Raises $16,566 for Area Food Banks   

May 20, 2020 | Fredericksburg, VA — Quarles Petroleum, Inc. is proud to support our local area food banks during these difficult economic times when many in our communities are in need.   

Each year, Quarles Petroleum sponsors an Annual Canned Food Drive Competition, generating thousands of pounds of non-perishable goods to benefit our area food banks throughout the communities we serve. 

As our offices are currently closed to visitors and many of us are working remotely to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, our associates recognized a greater need to continue supporting our local charities, whose missions are dedicated to serving those less fortunate especially in times of uncertainty. To support the increased community needs  we are now facing, our annual food drive competition became a virtual cash fundraiser. All donations from our associates received a matching donation from Quarles. Together, we have raised $16,566 which will be donated across food banks chosen by our associates, including the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank, the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, the Healthy Harvest Food Bank, the Capital Area Food Bank, and the Feed More Food Bank of Central Virginia.   

We appreciate and thank our associates for taking this opportunity to give back to our local communities. Families and our neighbors have been disproportionately affected by school closures, job disruptions, and health risks due to the coronavirus epidemic. We are dedicated to serving our communities and hope that by giving additional support to food banks in our area, we can ensure our communities stay healthy and safe.
