A new partnership between Road Runner and the Arkansas Community Foundation (ACF) is designed to benefit grantmaking in local counties.
From Nov. 1 through Dec. 12, select Road Runner convenience stores will donate a portion of each Champs Chicken meal sold to an Arkansas Community Foundation affiliate. These Road Runner locations will be reducing the meal prices by $2 and donating $2 for each meal sold to the Foundation.
These select Road Runner locations can be found in Conway (545 Skyline Dr.), Heber Springs (1500 Bypass Road), Little Rock (13400 I-30 and 800 South Broadway), Arkadelphia and Texarkana (5720 Four States Parkway) in Arkansas. There are also participating stores in Texas.
The Arkansas Community Foundation will use the funds to support Giving Tree endowments in Cleburne County, Faulkner County, Pulaski County and Texarkana. Giving Tree is the foundation’s signature grant program that “support a variety of causes based on changing community needs,” according to the ACF website.
Grants can be used for food pantries, domestic violence shelters, education and other local causes.
“During these unprecedented times, Arkansans are looking for ways to help their neighbors in need,” ACF president and CEO Heather Larkin said in a statement. “This new partnership is an easy way for donors to participate in grassroots charitable giving and support their communities.”
Coulson Oil Company operates Road Runner stores in Conway, Fayetteville, Fort Smith, Heber Springs, Hot Springs, Little Rock and Texarkana.
“Now more than ever, our state’s nonprofit and philanthropic organizations need our financial support to fulfill their missions,” Coulson Oil president and CEO John Harris said. “Coulson Oil is proud to partner with Arkansas Community Foundation to carry on our long tradition of giving back to those we serve.”
