During the month of November, customers of Casey's
General Stores
purchased $1 dog tags that were displayed throughout
the store. Collective efforts from the more than 1,900 stores located in
Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota,
Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota,
Tennessee and Wisconsin raised $672,451.04.

Through an additional in-store campaign, a $15,000 donation from MillerCoors
was also included in the donation.

Funds will benefit veterans, service members and military families
through a variety of programming including transition services, clinical
health and wellness, sports and recreation and community development and
engagement.

"At Casey's, we have a profound sense of gratitude for those who have
served their county and we are proud to be partnered with such an
incredible organization," said Jay Soupene, senior vice president,
operations. "Hope For The Warriors is completely dedicated to supporting
our service members and their families. This is our opportunity to give
back to those who have given so much in the defense of our great nation."

In six years of supporting Hope For The Warriors, Casey's General Stores
have raised more than $3.9 million.

"We're honored for the continued support of Casey's, its employees and
customers to the veterans, service members and military families that we
serve," said Robin Kelleher, co-founder and president of the national
nonprofit. "As always, thanks to this annual campaign we can continue to
impact the lives of those we serve through our programs right here in
the Midwest and across the United States."
