AWARD FOR NONPROFITS . . .
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society along with the Salvation Army of Knoxville were awarded checks recently from Pilot convenience stores. The money was raised by Pilot guests who opted to round up their purchases or give back to the community. Checks awarded totaled $57,000 and will make an impact in these organizations and services. “That will help us provide patient support: copay assistance, travel grants, and other information for those families when they are diagnosed,” says Lori Friel, campaign manager for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. “We house 88 people a night: men, women, and children, plus people in the community who we need to help with rent, food, and utilities. A lot of these opportunities would not be possible if we did not have the funds we need to generate to help the people in the community,” says Major Dalton Cunningham with the Salvation Army.
