Heroes On the Homefront Award!

Support Siouxland Soldiers presents Joe Fokken, store manager of Cubby’s Convenience Store (Cenex Station) in Sioux City, IA, with a 2012 Heroes on the Homefront Award. Joe and his team at Cubby’s Cenex Station received this award in recognition for their outstanding support of the Tri-state Region’s Service Members during their military duty and deployments.  Support Siouxland Soldiers thanked Joe for his countless hours of hard work and donations to support the Troops and their families. Over the years Joe and Cubby’s  have donated an abundance of snacks and items to be included in the Soldiers care-packages. On Armed Forces Day, Cubby’s Cenex Station hosted a care-packing event with Support Siouxland Soldiers and invited Military families and the public to come and customize care-packages for the deployed Siouxland Service Members. Cenex donated ten $50 gas cards to be raffled off with the proceeds covering the cost to ship the boxes. Joe also partnered with Pepsi and Bimbo Bakeries to make this event a great success!  So on behalf of all of the Military Families in the region, Support Siouxland Soldiers wants to say “Thank you, Joe Fokken and Cubby’s Cenex Station for being our Heroes on the Homefront!”
