24/7 Day: United We Serve

Coming together to honor those on the front lines of our communities 24/7/365


When our communities need us most, the convenience industry is always there. Now more than ever, we must come together to support those who work around the clock to take care of our communities. 24/7 Day, hosted by the NACS Foundation, along with participating convenience industry retailers, suppliers and partners, in support of the American Red Cross is a day to celebrate and honor the incredible life-saving work being done every day by those on the front lines of our communities across America and beyond, including doctors, nurses, EMTs, fire and police, first responders, service members, and other local heroes.

Learn more about how your company can amplify the reach and impact of its positive charitable efforts by taking part in this year’s 24/7 Day, held on July 24, 2020.

A Look Back at the First-ever 24/7 Day

Thank you to our convenience store partners Sheetz, RaceTrac, and Wawa as well as everyone who joined us on July 24, 2019 to honor local heroes and support the lifesaving work of the American Red Cross.

Sheetz served 500 free cups of coffee and fountain drinks to first responders in uniform as a way of saying ‘thank you.’ RaceTrac showed its love and support for first responders in uniform at all 539 locations. And last but not least, Wawa hosted a lunch for American Red Cross volunteers in eastern Pennsylvania to celebrate the big day.


NACS Foundation supports the American Red Cross for 24/7 Day to celebrate community heroes and inspire volunteerism.

Every day, nearly 30,000 people receive assistance from the American Red Cross—that's more than 1,200 people helped every hour of the day, including a disaster every eight minutes. Convenience stores serve communities across the country impacted by disasters, and, in times of need, we are often the first stores open for water, food, fuel, and ATMs. By partnering with the American Red Cross, NACS Foundation is working to raise funds and awareness about response relief.

Thank you to our sponsors and partners!
