Sheetz for The Kidz, an employee-driven charitable organization, provides children in need with the opportunity to celebrate the holidays with new toys, clothes and other necessities.

Sheetz employees participate in shopping, wrapping and hosting parties for participating children. Last year, more than $1.5 million raised benefited 9,300 children in the six states where Sheetz operates.

In partnership with Make-A-Wish, the funds also sponsor children with life-threatening conditions.

Chamber event


The Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber will host an “HR Hot Topics” event on class-action waivers from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Thursday in the chamber’s 17th-floor conference room, located at Federal Plaza Central No. 1600.

The Supreme Court recently issued a ruling that an arbitration agreement containing a waiver of class proceedings is enforceable under the Federal Arbitration Act, notwithstanding certain provisions of the National Labor Relations Act that seemed to state otherwise, according to the chamber.

The event will discuss the implications of this decision on the enforceability of these waivers.

The cost is $25 for chamber members and $35 for nonmembers.
