QuikTrip Receives Groundbreaker Award from United Way
Company Recognized at Live United Awards Dinner
The Tulsa Area United Way presented QuikTrip with the Groundbreaker Award for conducting the only employee campaign over $2 million! This is the sixth time QuikTrip has reached that mark. Jordan Goree, Store Manager and Loaned Executive; and Damon Wright, Environmental & Engineering Manager; accepted the award on behalf of QT. QuikTrip also received the Williams Summit Leadership Award at the Live United Awards and Luncheon, held on March 8th, 2022.
Jordan Goree, Store Manager at No. 55, was Tulsa’s Loaned Executive for about half of 2021. Jordan worked with the United Way throughout the campaign, and helped bring insight about QuikTrip’s involvement to employees all over Tulsa. He was able to attend several employee meetings and explain the impact that our donations have and the importance of supporting the communities in which we serve.
“I was thankful and blessed to have the opportunity to represent QuikTrip in accepting this award from the Tulsa Area United Way,” Jordan said. “It was an eye opening experience to see how QuikTrip operates with the United Way and on the community service side of things. It was definitely something that I was happy to be a part of.”
Thank you Jordan, and thank you to everyone who donated their time and money during this most recent United Way campaign!!
