In response to the devastating floods recently experienced in the country of Pakistan, VERC Enterprises, an independent convenience store, gasoline station and car wash operation with 23 locations throughout eastern Massachusetts and New Hampshire, has initiated a fundraising effort at each of its stores to assist those affected by the natural disaster.
“VERC Enterprises currently employs 28 managers/associates originally from Pakistan and while VERC staff family members who presently live in Pakistan were not directly affected by the floods, we felt strongly about helping those who were,” said Leo Vercollone, president of VERC.
Donation canisters are available on counters at all 21 VERC gasoline and convenience store locations for those customers who wish to donate to the cause. VERC Enterprises will match every dollar raised corporate-wide. Donations will be accepted through Sept. 9.
