Cumberland Farms Raises Funds for Connecticut School

02/10/2011

HARTFORD, Conn. -- In conjunction with the grand opening of its newest model convenience store in Madison, Cumberland Farms launched a fundraiser today to raise money for Daniel Hand High School students, the Hartford Courant reported.

Cumberland Farms will donate 20 cents from every Chill Zone beverage and cup of coffee sold at its 633 Boston Post Rd. store in Madison during the month-long fundraiser to benefit the school's 22nd annual Nite in Hand event, an alcohol-free graduation night party, the report stated. The money raised will help provide the students with food, decorations and games/entertainment for the all-night party, and Cumberland Farms is aiming to raise at least $1,000.

"We know how busy high school students and their families are this time of year," Ari Haseotes, president of Cumberland Farms Retail Division said in the report. "It's our pleasure to make things just a little bit easier to help Madison's students make smart choices, have fun and stay safe."

In the last year, Cumberland Farms donated more than $100,000 to support local schools and students in communities across the Northeast.
