BOISE – Hungry Idahoans are getting some extra help this holiday season, with Stinker Stores completing their “Stomp Out Hunger” fundraiser for 2014, raising $54,110 to help solve hunger in our state.

From November 7 to the 17th, Stinker customers were asked if they wanted to add a donation to The Idaho Foodbank. As they always have, the gracious people of Idaho stepped up and made the fundraiser a success. Customers donated $34,110 and Stinker Stores owners Charley and Nancy Jones matched donations with an extra $20,000. Together, the donations are enough to provide the food for 216,440 meals.

“The thing I enjoy most during the holidays is the time I get to spend with my family,” said Stinker Owner Charley Jones. “Idahoans should not have to worry about providing meals during a time that is meant for giving thanks and celebrating family. I’m pleased that our customers and employees helped deliver 216,440 meals this year to Idaho families, yet another Stinker Stores record,” Jones continued.

This year marks the most raised by the event, which started in 2011 with just under $12,000 being raised. In this month’s drive, Nampa’s Holly St. Stinker Store location led the way with $1,837 raised by its customers.

Stinker is also a major sponsor — through fuel donations — of the Foodbank’s Grocery Alliance Program. GAP brings in food donated by grocery stores that is near its sell-by date. The Foodbank’s GAP trucks, with fuel assistance from Stinker, are able to distribute the food quickly to partners, who in turn get it to hungry families.

“Stinker has stepped up as a true partner in the effort to solve hunger” said Karen Vauk, President and CEO of The Idaho Foodbank. “The food for 216,440 meals will be going to the people in the most need all over our state. We give thanks to Charley and Nancy and all the Stinker customers and employees who made this drive a success.”

Stinker Stores sells a willing Powerball Ticket!

BOISE — A 20-year-old man from Elko, Nevada is now a millionaire after hitting it big on the Powerball game.

Idaho Lottery officials say Cody Jueden claimed his $2 million prize Friday in Boise.

Jueden, who is a welder, was visiting Twin Falls last weekend with his fiancé, Brianna Benefield. Before leaving town on Sunday afternoon, he stopped at the Stinker Store at 880 Shoshone Street in Twin Falls to purchase a few Powerball tickets.

“It worked out pretty good, although I still don’t believe it,” said Jueden. “I’ve never seen so many zeroes before. This is a great opportunity for us.”

Jueden’s winning ticket matched the first five numbers but not the Powerball from Wednesday night’s draw. His winning Powerball ticket included the PowerPlay option, which doubled his prize to $2 million.

The couple plans to get married in Twin Falls a year-and-a-half.

Jueden says plans to use his winnings to pay off his house, truck, and then invest wisely for their life together.

Lottery officials say this is the second seven figure winning ticket sold at this Stinker Store location in the last two years. In February 2012, Bill and Mike Edson split a $1,000,000 Powerball prize.

 

For selling the winning ticket, Stinker Stores receives a $25,000 bonus from the Idaho Lottery.

 

There was no jackpot winner on Powerball Wednesday evening. The estimated Powerball jackpot for Saturday night’s draw is $125,000,000.

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!

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.

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.”
