WAWA, Pa. Equipped to brew and serve up to 500 cups of hot beverages at one time, including coffee and hot chocolate, Wawa’s new Community Care Vehicle made its rollout to thank healthcare workers at Riddle Hospital in Media, Pa., an institution near and dear to the convenience-store’s heart, the company said.

Wawa and The Wawa Foundation debuted the van and distributed beverages in heartfelt appreciation during Riddle Hospital’s Campus Transformation Project, supported in part by the foundation, that will alter the way the hospital delivers care in Delaware County. Wawa is currently offering a Free Coffee Tuesday promotion.

“As a company committed to serving its community, the Community Care Vehicle is another way for Wawa to provide support to national charity partners at community events and serve as a resource during times of crisis,” said Liz Simeone, community care and foundation manager at Wawa-Pa.-based Wawa. “The vehicle will provide The Wawa Foundation and Community Care team a quick and efficient way to brew coffee offsite from a store location and have a presence at hundreds of community events throughout its operating area.”
