2017 Dandy Canes Raise over $60,000 to Support Local Charities
Sayre, PA (February 1, 2018) – Starting on Black Friday and running through Christmas 2017, Dandy Mini Marts welcomed the holidays with their 13th annual Dandy Canes campaign. During the 32 days, customers were invited to make a $1 donation to local charities handpicked by store associates. Participants were given a paper “Dandy Cane”, to sign and display at the store, showing that they made a donation. Dandy has announced that the 2017 campaign raised an all-time high $60,034 across the chain’s 64 locations.

100% of the money raised by each store stays within the community that they serve; a very important aspect of Dandy Canes. Local food pantries, humane societies, pediatric services, crisis centers, Wounded Warriors, VFWs, EMS and fire departments were among the 100 organizations chosen. After each store manager and their associates selected charities that resonate with themselves and their customers, they worked extremely hard to spread the word and collect donations. Great support of Dandy Canes comes from the opportunity for our customers to give back to local organizations that touch so many hearts within their communities. 

Dandy Mini Marts President, Randy Williams, thanks all whom were involved in the success of the 2017 Dandy Canes: “We are thrilled that together with the community we are able to provide over $60,000 in charitable donations to so many great organizations. I would personally like to thank both our associates, who put for such a tremendous effort for these wonderful organizations, and all of our valued customers for being so generous during the holiday season.”
