GATE donated $80,000 to the American Cancer Society (ACS) to support breast cancer research and awareness. Funds were raised in GATE stores as part of the company’s pink ribbon paper icon campaign that ran from October 1 – 21, 2020.
The GATE Foundation used the company’s 60th anniversary as an opportunity to raise matching funds from its vendors and business partners. The Foundation typically hosts its annual charity golf tournament in the fall, where supporters raise money for a selected charity. However, COVID-19 restrictions put a halt to the 2020 event.
The GATE Foundation and GATE customers raised $45,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association. Funds were raised January 1, 2020 through June 30, 2020 as part of GATE’s coin box campaign. Coin collection boxes with a description of the Alzheimer’s Association were placed at the registers of all GATE stores to collect donations from customers
