Love's directs the majority of its charitable contributions to charities in and
around our Oklahoma City headquarters.
All Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores allocate funds each year to support
local charities and non-profit organizations in their communities. Our stores support
schools and other organizations that focus on youth and education, such as 4-H clubs
and Future Farmers of America (FFA).
Because Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores receives more requests than we
