This year, we acknowledged QuikTrip as an official ACH Community Partner. QT not only supports ACH and the National Safe Place program but also encourages a culture of giving and caring for the community.
One of our staff members, Julie, recently stopped by a QT store and shared this story with us:
“I wanted to give my gratitude and say thank you to Cody at QT in Lake Worth. It seems like we go into a QT somewhere around our city every day, and my 9-year-old son gets a Slurpee and two taquitos for his after-school snack. Cody, the cashier associate, asked my son if he had a good day at school and what he had learned that day. My son, with a huge grin on his face, replied ‘Multiplication and division.’ Cody said, ‘That's awesome—just for that I'm giving you a coupon for a free drink. Keep up the good work because knowledge is power.’ I think he may have given him a high five!
Wow! Wow! WOW! (That was such an incredible moment for my son because he's really been struggling in math and school lately.)
I was in complete shock but so proud of Cody and my son. My son was smiling from ear to ear and so proud of himself. It literally brought me to tears. What an incredible, kind gesture for Cody to do. He certainly didn't have to do that, but it took just a few minutes to make a difference to my son. I don't think we will ever forget that. Thank you, QT, for hiring great, quality staff that go above and beyond to treat our kids—and adults—with respect. My son got out of the car this morning and said ‘Well, it's time to learn some more multiplication and division.’ He was actually excited about learning today. (#proudmommoment)”
We are proud to have QuikTrip as an ACH Community Partner and appreciate all that they do in our community. Thank you times ten, QT!
