  • Free Coffee for Teachers & School Administration
    All day, every day from September 1-30, any size coffee is free for all teachers and school administrators.

From September 1 – September 10, Wawa has scheduled a “Cheers Tour,” with its Wawa Community Care Truck visiting select schools that have been selected to receive funding to formally present checks and brighten days with freshly brewed coffee and donuts!

  • Store to School Visits
    All 940+ Wawa stores selected a local school of their choice to receive 50 free Sizzli® coupons, 2 boxes of coffee and 50 free specialty, heart-shaped, apple-filled donuts and fun props during special visits the weeks of September 13 – September 24. That’s 47,000 Sizzlis® and 47,000 donated donuts chainwide!

About Wawa, Inc.
Wawa, Inc., a privately held company, began in 1803 as an iron foundry in New Jersey. Toward the end of the 19th Century, owner George Wood took an interest in dairy farming and the family began a small processing plant in Wawa, PA in 1902. The milk business was a huge success, due to its quality, cleanliness and “certified” process. As home delivery of milk declined in the early 1960s, Grahame Wood, George’s grandson, opened the first Wawa Food Market in 1964 as an outlet for dairy products. Today, Wawa is your all day, every day stop for freshly prepared foods, beverages, coffee, fuel services and surcharge-free ATMs. Wawa stores are located in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Florida and Washington, D.C. The stores offer a large fresh foodservice selection, including Wawa brands such as custom prepared hoagies, freshly-brewed coffee, hot breakfast sandwiches, specialty beverages and an assortment of soups, sides and snacks. Forbes.com Ranks Wawa as #23 of America’s Largest Private Companies in 2020. For more information, visit us on www.wawa.com or follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram at @wawa.
