Stripes Convenience Stores Raising Money For Cancer Research

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Stripes Convenience Stores are teaming up with you to raise money for cancer research.

The convenience store off of Highway 191 and Faudree in Odessa hosted their "Stripes Celebrates Tomorrows" campaign kick-off.  

On Thursday, they invited the community out to paint a red "strike" through the word "cancer" outside of the stripes location.

The event was a donation driven, where all proceeds go to M.D. Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital.

"The unique thing about this is that 100% of the profits, 100% of the donations go directly to children's cancers, clinical trials that they're doing there. The education, the creative arts programs, and we also have matching donors so for every dollar, that becomes $2, so no dollar is too small," said Eduardo Pereda, Vice President of Stripes Marketing.

Customers were also able to write tributes and words of encouragement to honor their loved ones during the kick-off event.
