Ricker’s Presents Check at “Caring For Our Communities” Event

Tipton, IN – Ricker Oil presented the Encore Lifestyle & Enrichment Center in Tipton with a check for $500 in support of the local nonprofit’s efforts, which include providing transportation and programming for those 60 years of age and older, as well as a food pantry that services low-income families of Tipton County.

The event took place this morning at the Tipton Ricker’s (236 R. Jefferson St.). Ricker’s mascot, “Pops The Clown,” was also in attendance, as he posed for photos and conducted the check presentation.

The contribution was part of Ricker’s “Caring For Our Communities’ Charities” campaign, in which Ricker’s works to positively impact Indiana’s communities by providing support for local charitable organizations, such as Encore.

“We want to touch the communities where we do business in a more personal way,” said Jay Ricker, Founder and CEO of Ricker Oil.  “Supporting organizations like Encore that make a tangible difference in their towns is a way for us to accomplish this.”

Ricker’s plans to continue its efforts, and hopes to provide similar support for designated charitable organizations in each of the communities where its 50 convenience stores are located by the end of the year.
