Wawa to Give Thousands to ‘Hero’ Non-Profits on July 4th

Philadelphia-area favorite Wawa wants to recognize heroes in the community giving away $80,000 in grants.

The Wawa Foundation is asking people to share heroic stories about the work being done by Philadelphia-area non-profits "serving the community and inspiring citizens to become better community members."

The winning organization will receive a $50,000 grant with three runner-ups getting $10,000 each with winners being announced on July 4th at the Wawa Welcome America festivities, said Wawa.

"The Wawa Foundation would like to hear what ‘Hero’ means to your organization and how you are working to inspire and improve the communities you serve," said a post to the foundation's website looking for submissions.
