ANKENY, IA – Casey's General Stores will officially be reopening its Marshalltown store location (111 North 3rd Avenue) on Friday, May 24th after almost 10 months of repairs resulting from the wide-reaching destructive tornado path. To celebrate that, and the continual efforts and determination of the Marshalltown community, Casey's is helping rebuild efforts by contributing $10,000 to the Veterans Memorial Coliseum project, and offering the community a limited-time reduced-price fuel promotion.
"The Veterans Memorial Coliseum symbolizes so much for the Marshalltown community," said Mike Richardson, Casey's Vice President of Marketing, who presented the check. "It's the heart of the city and is the home of so many programs and events that benefit the people of this hard-working town. Casey's wants to be a part of rebuilding this important community landmark."
The tornado that ripped through Marshalltown on July 19, 2018, was devasting to the community. The past year has been a continuum of rebuild – plans, construction and fundraising for those projects – including the Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Jenny Hart is the recreation department coordinator and oversees all of the Coliseum's programs and operations, "This building was used by hundreds of residents on a daily basis, and it had to be gutted to the studs due to the tornado," said Jenny. "We rely on donors like Casey's to help us get it back in operation and I can't wait for our residents to be able to come back to the Coliseum." Country-music entertainer Jason Brown is also on board with the Veterans Memorial Coliseum rebuild efforts and will be hosting a benefit concert in Marshalltown on July 6th.
In addition to the donation, Casey's is also offering a special fuel promotion at it's 3rd Avenue location on May 24th from 11AM – 2PM: unleaded 88 fuel will be just $1.88 and E85 will be only $.85. KIX101 will be broadcasting live (11AM – 1PM) from the new Casey's as well.
