Idaho, together we raised $50,000, which equates to 150,000 meals! We are overwhelmed with the outpouring of support year after year!

This is $10,000 more than this year’s ambitious goal of $40,000. And it is nearly three times the $17,246 raised last year and almost five times the $11,782 total of the first drive in 2011.

Thank you Idaho!

Dr Pepper and Stinker Stores Announce Dr Pepper Hometown Tuition Giveaway for Idaho Students

Stinker and the Idaho Foodbank are at it again, this year it gets even better!

Since 2011, Stinker Stores’Stomp Out Hunger campaign has raised more money each year. For 2013, the company has decided to go above and beyond.

In 2011, Stinker and its customers donated nearly $11,800. In 2012, it was more than $17,000. This year the goal is $40,000.Idaho Foodbank stinker_stores_lg

From Nov. 11-Nov. 18, Stinker will match, up to $20,000, every dollar customers donate at its 65 retail sites in Idaho. If the fundraising campaign hits the $40,000 goal, it will provide 120,000 meals for Idaho families and their children.

“In Idaho, more than 96,000 children – one out of four – don’t know where their next meal will come from or if they will even have one,” said Charley Jones, owner of Stinker Stores. “That is why Stinker Stores is teaming up with The Idaho Foodbank to Stomp Out Hunger this holiday season. For every dollar our customers donate during this annual community fund drive, we’ll match it up to $20,000. So please join our Stinker team and make a donation at any Stinker Store from Nov. 11-18, and let’s Stomp Out Hunger in Idaho.”

“We are thrilled and grateful to be able to partner with Stinker again,” said Karen Vauk, President and CEO of The Idaho Foodbank. “This campaign makes it easy for people across the state to be involved, and they know every dollar they donate will be doubled. Stomp Out Hunger will make a huge difference for children and their families across Idaho this holiday season.”

Two Idaho Students Receive $2,000 Scholarship from Dr. Pepper and Stinker Stores

Dr. Pepper and Stinker Stores partnered to award two students with a $2,000 scholarship to cover educational expenses. The winners of this Text to Enter contest have been officially selected – STORIES and PHOTOS attached.

Boise, Idaho – Stinker Stores teamed up with Dr Pepper late last year to help two Idaho students defray the cost of a college education. Richard Holman of Ammon and Blake Bunney of Moscow are the recipients.

Richard Holman of Ammon, Idaho – Upon receiving a phone call explaining the opportunity and how to enter, Richard quickly sent a text that would later change the future for his daughter Brooke. Holman will be gifting the $2,000 scholarship to his daughter who is attending Idaho State University. She is a non-traditional student with temporal lobe epilepsy which makes certain careers challenging for her. Brooke has chosen theater arts as her new path and this award will be a great help as the family has two other children in college.

“I’m excited at the opportunity this scholarship will create for my daughter,” said Holman. “This truly could not have come at a better time.”

Blake Bunney of Moscow, Idaho – Bunney is a hard worker managing two jobs and school at the same time.  Growing up in Princeton, a small town in Northern Idaho, Blake later attended college at Jamestown in North Dakota where he played NAIA baseball. Currently, he is attending North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene where he is in the process of earning a plumbers apprenticeship and license.

Working for a plumbing company and in the leather craft trade, Blake is dedicated to completing his education and paying off his student loans.  “The pressures of working two jobs and going to school have been more intense than I would like. This scholarship helps a great deal and I’m looking forward to focusing on my career as a plumber,” said Bunney.

“I’m thrilled that Stinker Stores and Dr Pepper brought this national contest to Idaho,” said Charley Jones, Owner and President of Stinker Stores. “Education helps strengthen the foundation of any community, and I’m happy to see that we helped these two winners complete their quest for higher education.”

The program is part of the annual Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway, which awards more than $1 million in tuition prizes each year to students across the country. For more information on the Dr Pepper Tuition Giveaway, visit www.drpeppertuition.com.

Kids Expo, 2014 Ford Idaho Center

The kids expo at the Ford Idaho Center on February 1st, 2014. Was an amazing time, with thousands of people and thousands of giveaways! Did you get some Stinker gear? We really appreciate everyone stopping by and fishing with Polecat Pete it was a great time!

Ronnie who owns and operates a face painting booth, wanted to instigate a bet with our social media guy Alex. The bet? Alex had to wear a T-Shirt that he had been giving away all day, the problem with that was…the size, 3T a shirt meant for toddlers. Wish we could find that picture…but we do have a picture of Ronnie who lost the bet.
