In support of Heart Month in February, Pilot Travel Centers is kicking off its seventh year of raising funds to support the fight against heart disease and stroke.
During February, guests can visit participating Pilot, Flying J and One9 travel centers to donate to the campaign. Ways to contribute include:
- Paper hearts: $1, $3 and $5 paper hearts will be available for purchase at participating travel centers to benefit the American Heart Association's Life is Why campaign in the United States and Heart and Stroke Foundation in Canada with 100% of the proceeds donated to each organization, respectively.
- Pin pad roundup or donation: Guests can round up their purchase to the nearest whole dollar or elect to donate other amounts on the pin pad during checkout to the American Heart Association's Life is Why campaign at participating U.S. travel centers or the Heart and Stroke Foundation in participating Canada locations with 100% of the proceeds donated to each organization, respectively.
Certain purchases, including fuel and fuel additives and purchases made on fleet cards or direct bill programs are not eligible for round-up contributions.
"Together, we have the power to make a significant difference in the lives of people, both within our local communities and across the globe," said Diana Morgan, director of well-being and benefits at Pilot Travel Centers LLC. "Rounding-up your purchase or buying a paper heart enables the American Heart Association and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada to discover breakthroughs and develop initiatives that will save and improve lives."
