In Nov, 2021 Gate presented the American Cancer Society with a $65,000 donation to support breast cancer research and awareness. Funds were raised in GATE stores across FL, GA, NC and SC as part of GATE’s pink ribbon paper icon campaign. Customers either donated $1 and signed their name to a pink ribbon paper icon or rounded their purchase to the nearest dollar donating the difference to ACS.
GATE presented a check for $170,000 to St. John’s County Firefighters for Families. Funds were raised during their annual charity golf tournament held in October. This charity supports families in need who reside in St. Johns County, Florida and promotes school readiness and attendance.
Funds were raised in GATE’s convenience stores in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina through the company’s semi-annual paper icon campaign. Between May 1 and May 21, customers could donate $1.00 and sign their name on an ALS paper icon displayed in the GATE store or by rounding up their purchase to the nearest dollar. Funds were allocated to local ALS chapters throughout the regions where the funds were raised.
