American Red Cross of Central Texas CEO Marty McKellips and Development Associate Sinclair Fleetwood presented the Greater Austin Merchants Cooperative Association (GAMA) with a Good Neighbor Certificate at their offices on July 21,2010.
GAMA serves convenience store and gasoline station owners by equipping them with bulk purchasing power, industry know-how, and the right connections to strengthen their business practices. In cooperation with their member stores, GAMA has partnered with the American Red Cross of Central Texas through Fund Red canister drives, placing more than 700 canisters in their stores to collect donations from customers and patrons.
Since 2008, GAMA member stores have raised more than $7,500.00 for relief efforts in response to Hurricane Ike and the Haiti Earthquake, while also helping the local chapter provide relief to families affected by disasters here in Central Texas.
Thank you GAMA!
