ANKENY, Iowa – ‘Dog tags’ for Hope For the Warriors are available for $1 throughout May at Casey’s General Store.

The nonprofit, tax-exempt charity helps post-9/11 service members and their families, including those who sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty.

They will be displayed at more than 1,800 stores. All proceeds will go to the charity.

This is the third year Casey’s has supported Hope For the Warriors. More than $745,000 has been donated.
