No, Sheetz isn't just cheap or using left over cups from last year's holiday season.

Sheetz does have its holiday cups in stores across the region, but it's not because they are already preparing for Santa.

The cups are out as part of the company's Christmas in July fundraiser for the Sheetz for Kids Charity. The company does a push for donations every July and December for the charity that provides gifts and other basic needs to children throughout the holidays. They also partner with Make-A-Wish to give ill children a vacation to Florida.

And even though its 10 days into August, who doesn't want to raise awareness for a charity? Maybe we could all use a little more of the holiday spirit all year long.

Despite the company's annoucement about the promotion at the beginning of July. The unseasonable cups had some people taking to social media to try and figure it out.
