When it comes to supporting local non-profits, there might not be an easier and more impactful program than Kwik Care.

If you're not aware, Kwik Care has helped raise both funds and awareness for local nonprofits. Each month, Kwik Stop and Dairy Queen help collect donations for a different organization. Donations can be made easily by requesting your total purchase at any of those businesses (including at the gas pumps at Kwik Stop) be rounded up to the nearest dollar. The additional cents used to round up will be donated to the respective charity of the month.

This month's Kwik Care recipient is the Two By Two Character Development, located in Kennedy Circle in Dubuque. Two By Two is a nonprofit organization "dedicated to creating a kinder world for people, animals, and the environment through engaging social-emotional learning programming," per their website.

Amy Davidshofer of Kwik Stop/Rainbo Oil stopped by the studio to talk about all the incredible work Two By Two has done/is continuing to do throughout the Tri-States.

Kristin Woodward-Vaassen, the founder of Two By Two, notes how making the world a kinder place is a challenging endeavor but a rewarding one no less, per the "Who We Are" tab on the organization's website:

Helping to make the world a kinder place has been both rewarding and heartrending, as the work never ends. What I know is that even though I miss the classroom and its daily connection to kids, this is where I am meant to be, as our mission continues to make an impact daily…To develop responsible citizens of strong character who care for, respect, and appreciate people, animals, and the environment.

All month long, Kwik Stop and Dairy Queen will be taking donations that will go directly to Two By Two Character Development via the aforementioned Kwik Care canisters at the counter or if customers request their purchase-total be rounded up to the nearest dollar (the difference going to Two By Two).

Find it in your hearts to donate to Two By Two Character Development via Kwik Care this month, if you're able. And take a listen to my full interview with Amy Davidshofer of Kwik Stop/Rainbo Oil below!
