Salute Our Troops Campaign

The Pantry/Kangaroo Express has selected American Red Cross as a national charity partner for its 2014 Salute Our Troops campaign. Under its primary operating banner, Kangaroo Express, The Pantry operates more than 1,500 convenience stores across 13 states in the southeastern United States. Because more than half of its stores are located within 25 miles of a military installing, supporting troops and their families is part of the fabric of Kangaroo Express.

From now through September 2, customers at Kangaroo Express will have the option to round up their purchase or make a donation to American Red Cross. Donations made to the Red Cross will support our Services to the Armed Forces programs. To learn more about our SAF program, click here to watch a short video.

Additionally, Kangaroo Express will coordinate “ROO Rides”, which are motorcycle charity rides that will recognize military heroes and families in local communities along its route. Motorcyclists will stop at Kangaroo Express locations to gas up, purchase convenience store items and make donations in support of the campaign.
