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.
