Our customers are a driving force for change! Since 2002, your spare change has added up to nearly $1.5 million dollars for local nonprofits. Thank YOU. We’re happy to help local organizations meet their mission because we know their work helps people throughout our community, every day.
We're locally owned and community focused. And as our family-owned business has grown, so has our commitment to the Tri-States. We support local programs that provide important outcomes for people who live and work in our community.
We provide support in many ways including: donating goods or services to support fundraisers; sponsor community events; provide financial support to help organizations meet specific goals.

KWIK CARE LOCAL BUSINESS GRANT
In an initiative to give back during these challenging times, we offered all locally-owned small businesses in the community the opportunity to apply for our Kwik Care “Gallons for the Community” Local Business Grant. A committee reviewed grant applications and choose 9 local businesses to receive the local business grant.
Each Kwik Stop location in Dubuque and Peosta had designated pumps with the Kwik Care Local Business Grant decal where 2 cents for every gallon pumped for three months, from June 22 through Sept. 14, were compiled and split equally between the following businesses (in alphabetical order): All Paws Salon & Spaw, Crescent Community Health Center, Dubuque Community YMCA YWCA, Dubuque Sports Complex, Hops & Rye Restaurant Dubuque, Junction 21, Tri-State Auto Sales, Quiet Walker Lodge Bed and Breakfast Inn, and Zeal Salon Spa & Academy.
Thank you for helping support local businesses in your community by filling up at the Kwik Care "Gallons for the Community" designated pumps!
