Giving Back

We have a passion for giving back to the communities where our team members and guests live and work. Our team members volunteer to make their communities better through community service, humanitarian day events, and fundraising projects.

Our Projects

Thorntons limits its assistance to organizations that the company selects and solicits based upon our philanthropic guidelines.

No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in six children struggles with hunger. Thorntons local store marketing efforts will focus on ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day in the communities we serve.

Organizations must have been granted 501(c)(3) status by the Internal Revenue Service and requests or specific program support are preferable to requests for general operating funds. Special consideration is given to organizations with which Thorntons Inc. team members are actively involved, provided the organization falls within the general focus areas above.

If you believe your organization meets these criteria, please contact us at for consideration.

Environmental Stewardship

As we design new stores and update our current locations, Thorntons carefully considers opportunities to improve our environment.

Some of our efforts include:

LED Lighting

In all of our currently remodeled stores as well as all future renovations, we have installed (or will install) LED cooler lights. We also have selected Beta LED exterior lighting for 39 of our stores and will continue to use them for all future renovations and new stores.

Harvesting Daylight

In an effort to reduce our energy consumption, we make strong use of natural lighting. We use window shades to help keep our stores naturally cooler and use natural lighting to reduce our usage of electric fixtures.


We have two dumpsters on most of our premises, one for miscellaneous waste and one for cardboard recycling.

Efficient Appliances

We use Energy Star appliances in all of our locations.

Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products

Our stores are cleaned internally and externally with cleaners that are environmentally safe and friendly.


Many Thorntons locations offer both E85 and Biodiesel for energy-efficient automobiles and trucks.

Founded by James H. Thornton in 1971, the company has been recognized as one of the top independent convenience store chains in the nation. Based in Louisville, Kentucky, Thorntons currently operates 192 stores that provide fresh foods, high quality beverages and fuel in six states: Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee.
