Tody only, 7-Eleven is donating 100 percent of proceeds from sales of Slurpees to Feeding America and its local member food banks which help feed the poor and needy. The date, Nov. 7, is 7-Eleven in reverse.
7-Eleven is calling 11/7 “Name Your Own Price Day”. Fill your cup and pay what you wish. Whether it is 5-cents, 50-cents or $5, even a small donation can make a big impact to ensure that poor and needy people have something to eat this holiday season.
Be thirsty, my friend. Pay it forward and pay more than usual for a 7-Eleven Slurpee. And even if you aren’t thirsty, drop some coins in the Name Your Own Price donations box.
Feeding America is a nationwide network of food banks which helps feed tens of millions of people through food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other community-based agencies in communities across America. Find a Feeding America Food Bank near you.
Every year, 7-Eleven celebrates 7-Eleven Day, July 7 (7/11) to give back to its customers. This year, in addition, the iconic day is being reversed on November 7 (11/7) to give customers the chance to give back. Let’s hope Name Your Own Price Day also becomes an annual “thing”.
