Round-Up For Kids raises $1,600 for Carl Perkins Center

Fast Stop Market in Parsons recently held a "Round-Up For Kids" campaign which resulted in a donation of over $1,600 for the Decatur County Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse. We are very grateful to this wonderful group of people and customers for making an impact for children in Decatur County!

“This effort was all about supporting these vulnerable children and raising awareness about these critical services,” said Seth Blanks, CEO of Highland Corporation, the parent company of Fast Stop Markets. “We are so thankful to these centers for the important work they do every day. We’re also thankful to our customers for stepping up in such a major way for children in their communities. This would not have been possible without their generosity.”

Fast Stop Markets is a subsidiary of Highland Corporation, which coordinated this effort through its charitable arm, the Highland Corporation Charitable Foundation based in Hohenwald, Tenn. Fast Stop Markets has 14 stores located in Columbia, Spring Hill, Dickson, White Bluff, Centerville, Lawrenceburg, Lexington, Henderson, Parsons and Clarksville. For more information, visit
