    March of Dimes Recognizes Circle K Stores for raising over $8 Million

    Local Ambassador Family joins March of Dimes staff in presentation to represent the thousands of babies helped by their efforts in 14 March of Dimes Chapters

    Indianapolis, IN, July 16, 2014 —

    Circle K Stores in the Midwest and Great Lakes Regions were recognized for their $8 million in contributions to March of Dimes by the Weaver Family, March of Dimes Ambassadors, and staff at a statewide meeting held in Indianapolis.  Contributions raised through paper pumpkin sales each October are used to help fund programs in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Iowa, and West Virginia.

    This is the result of an 18 year partnership with the March of Dimes. “The Pick-A-Pumpkin Campaign for March of Dimes has become a cultural event for our organization…it just gets stronger and stronger support every year.  It’s an important part of how we serve and support the local communities where we operate,” said Mark Novak, Director of Human Resources for Circle K Stores.  “With 1 in 9 babies born prematurely, we know that many of our associates have been helped by March of Dimes.  They’ve shared their stories with us.  We know our customers understand that the work of the March of Dimes is important.   Our motivation is to always remember that the money raised goes to help all babies by funding March of Dimes programs to prevent preterm birth, birth defects and infant mortality in the communities where our associates and customers live and work.” 

    “Circle K stores and their employees are champions for babies,” says Amber Deckard, State Director Indiana Chapter of March of Dimes.  “4 million babies are born every year and March of Dimes helps every one through its 75 years of research, vaccines and breakthroughs.  Every day babies are born healthier and stronger, and Circle K stores have been a big part of that success.”

    Local March of Dimes Ambassador Family, the Weavers, presented Circle K with a thank you card the four children made themselves along with an individual award for Mark Novak for his years of leadership of the campaign which has raised over $8 million for the mission of March of Dimes. 

    The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
