Jiffy Trip Raises $48,903 for Children’s Hospital Foundation

Oklahoma City – Jiffy Trip, an Oklahoma family-owned convenience store chain, raised an impressive $48,903 in their fourth fundraising campaign for Children’s Hospital Foundation (CHF). The campaign ran in all 28 stores across Oklahoma last fall. Funds raised support priority programs of research, education and specialty care for thousands of Oklahoma’s children every year.

Children’s Hospital Foundation’s current priority is enhancing the programs of the Jimmy Everest Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders currently serving approximately 120 new cancer patients every year.

“We are so grateful to the wonderful people at Jiffy Trip for their long-standing commitment to the children of Oklahoma”, said Kathy McCracken, executive director of CHF.“We could not do the work we do without the generosity of people like Alex Williams and his team at Jiffy Trip.”Jiffy Trip has been a supporter of CHF since 2017 and has raised more than $315,000 in that time. Despite the economic difficulties due to the pandemic, the Jiffy Trip campaign was still a success.

“Jiffy Trip chose the Oklahoma Children’s Hospital Foundation as our primary fundraising beneficiary due to their impact on the communities we serve,” said Alex Williams, chief operating officer of Jiffy Trip.“CHF’s services touch each county that we serve and have a footprint in. Each year, we hear stories from our customers who have a child, grandchild, niece, or nephew who received critical care that they could not otherwise afford. Every dollar that our customers and company contribute stays in Oklahoma to support the most vulnerable in our state. Our Fall fundraiser brings out pride and friendly competition amongst our teams to rally together and raise more money than their peers. We are thrilled to hear new stories each year of the impact that our company has on the health of children in Oklahoma.”
