Ever Seen This Sign at Your Local QuikTrip? Here’s Why It’s So Important That It’s There.
In a given year, between 1.6 and 2.8 million youths run away. Many of these youths are victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse, and/or neglect. Terrified for their lives, they often feel as though they have no where to turn.
But one store is working hard to change that.
QuikTrip provides a safe place for at-risk youth to come and receive food, water, and protection until help arrives. A Safe Place sign is placed outside each QuikTrip location to remind individuals that if they are in danger, they can find safety in the store.
With over 700 stores throughout the United States, QuikTrip assists youths in getting off the streets and into a safe place.
