More than $650,000 raised by employees during annual campaign

Love’s Travel Stops contributed $1.5 million to the United Way of Central Oklahoma in 2022, including over $650,000 raised by employees through the company’s annual campaign that takes place each October. Since 1999, Love’s has donated more than $9 million to the organization.

“Love’s corporate employees always look forward to the annual United Way campaign because it gives them the opportunity to give back to the community they are a part of,” said Shane Wharton, president of Love’s and chair elect, board of directors for United Way of Central Oklahoma. “The tremendous impact the United Way has is vital to the Greater Oklahoma City area, and it’s always great to see the numerous ways our team members are willing to help their fellow community members every year.”

For this year’s campaign, money was raised for the United Way of Central Oklahoma with the help of Love’s corporate employees who pledged funds and participated in virtual auctions and raffles in addition to Love’s contributing a 50 percent match of all employee donations. Other components contributing to the total included vendor donations and donations earlier this year to the Mental Health Association of Oklahoma and Urban League.

“From a record-breaking workplace campaign to countless hours spent volunteering, the generosity of the Love’s team never ceases to amaze us,” said Debby Hampton, president and CEO of the United Way of Central Oklahoma. “Love’s has a true heart for this community, and we couldn’t be more grateful for their support of our United Way.”

In 2021, more than 600,000 service connections of shelter, food and/or material goods were made through the United Way of Central Oklahoma Partner Agencies. All donations raised during Love’s campaign will go to the United Way of Central Oklahoma’s 54 Partner Agencies to help address issues ranging from homelessness to food insecurities and crisis intervention.
