At Wawa, our purpose of fulfilling lives every day means being involved as a community partner and helping to champion causes close to the hearts of our associates and neighbors. LLS and Light the Night is one of those special causes.
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) has been a strong partner of The Wawa Foundation for many years and that continues to this day. Every year, in addition to fundraising, Wawa associates roll up their sleeves and participate in Light the Night, the annual LLS event dedicated to raising awareness, funds and bringing the community together to support families and individuals affected by blood cancers. This past year, Wawa supported more than a dozen LLS walks across six states, with hundreds of associate volunteers serving hot coffee and snacks to participants. From a bright smile and a hot cup of coffee, to a warm hug and little word of encouragement, our associates showed our shared commitment to this cause. The LLS mission of “some day is today” is as inspiring to us as it is to the families and community members who hold their lanterns high in hope. We truly believe that someday is getting closer and closer to today.
