Casey’s Customer Donations Exceed Expectations

ANKENY, Iowa–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Casey’s General Stores, Inc. (Casey’s) first month-long charitable
round-up program ended with a total of $2,357,362.52, far surpassing the
program’s expectations. Proceeds will be donated to Children’s Miracle
Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals) benefiting 28 local CMN Hospitals
within Casey’s marketing territories.

“The CMN Hospitals Round-up program was a huge success,” said Terry
Handley, President and CEO at Casey’s. “While Casey’s collected the
donations, the real recognition goes to our valued customers who are
100% responsible. On their behalf, we’re thrilled to present this check
to the CMN Hospitals.”

The round up program had staggered start dates depending on the store
location, but each store ran the program for four weeks, mostly in
February. At the cash register, customers were asked if they wanted to
“round-up” their purchase to the nearest dollar – the average amount
donated was $0.39.

“Donating only a few cents at a time can provide tremendous results for
such a worthy cause,” added Handley.

“We are grateful to Casey’s and its customers for their support of the
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” said John Lauck, President and
CEO of CMN Hospitals. “We know this sizable donation to the Children’s
Hospitals will help them in their treatment of sick and injured
