To mark the grand opening of its newest remodeled convenience store, Cumberland Farms has kicked off a month-long fundraiser that will benefit the students of Brookfield Elementary School.
For the next month, Cumberland Farms plans to donate 20 cents from every Chill Zone beverage and cup of coffee sold at its 225 Main Street store in Brookfield to the current fifth grade class. All proceeds will support a class trip to Camp Bournedale, which students take in sixth grade.
“With so many tight budgets these days, the costs of school trips can seem overwhelming to families,” said Principal Kathleen Hosterman. “This donation will help lesson those burdens, and encourage our students to keep learning. We’re grateful to Cumberland Farms for this generous donation, and thank them for their support.”
Cumberland Farms hopes to raise at least $1,000 for the class trip.
“This fundraiser is our way of thanking the Brookfield families who patronize our stores,” said Ari Haseotes, president of Cumberland Farms Retail Division. “It’s our pleasure to give something back to them, and help these kids take new adventures, and broaden their minds.”
So far this year, Cumberland Farms has donated more than $10,000 to support local schools in communities where we live and work.
Cumberland Farms employees and Brookfield Elementary students and staff plan to hold a kick-off fundraiser celebration at 3:30pm on Wednesday, Nov. 3, at the new store, located at 225 Main Street, in Brookfield, Mass.
