Where: Fuel King Napoleon Travel Center - Great Idea: Clothing Donation Dropoff

GreatIdeaNapoleons.jpg

At their location in Napoleon, Ohio, owners Jack and Paul Grewal had heard from drivers looking to do­nate jackets at the end of the season so they could avoid hauling them around for an entire year. The driv­ers didn’t want to simply throw away the jackets, and the Grewals wanted to help facilitate drivers’ generosity.

Now Fuel King Napoleon Travel Center serves as a donation drop-off point in conjunction with Planet Aid. Drivers have said they make a point to fuel at the location because of the donation box, creating a win-win situation for the travel center, drivers and those in need.
