Convenience Store News – Community Service Spotlight: OnCue

May 25, 2021


The Oklahoma-based operator of 75 c-stores donated $40,000 of non-perishable food and personal care products to several local food banks in conjunction with the release of a limited-edition cup that will raise funds for The Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s Food for Kids Programs.

OnCue will contribute 50 cents to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma for every cup sold through the end of June, or as long as supplies last. The cup retails for $1.99.
“We have all been deeply impacted this past year, but when one in four kids in Oklahoma were hungry before the pandemic, it makes sense why we are witnessing a whole new level of need,” said Laura Aufleger, president of OnCue. “Food is essential, and we are grateful we can come together to support The Regional Food Bank and their partner agencies, and specifically, programs like Food For Kids.”

Additionally, OnCue raised $12,500 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma through the sale of limited-edition co-branded cups. For every cup sold, the operator contributed 50 cents to local mentoring programs.

OnCue operates stores in four of Big Brother Big Sisters program service areas in Oklahoma, each of which is a recipient of the funds raised. The cups were available from January through the end of March.

“It’s amazing to see such an outpour of support for Oklahoma’s youth as we work toward unlocking each child’s potential,” said Aufleger.
