Arby’s raises funds to help end hunger
Arby’s restaurants across the country raised a record-breaking $3 million in just six weeks to help end childhood hunger in America, a 14 percent increase from 2012.
Participating Arby’s restaurants collected donations from Aug. 19 through Sept. 29 in support of the Arby’s Foundation’s mission to end childhood hunger in partnership with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. Customers were encouraged to donate $1 to show their support, and received a pin-up card to sign and display on the walls of their local restaurant.
Arby’s franchisee Carisch Inc. raised the most money, contributing more than $134,000. Carisch Inc. owns and operates 67 Arby’s restaurants in seven states. Carisch Inc. owns Arby’s in Milwaukee, all of Montana and North Dakota, Moorhead, Minn., Sioux City, Iowa, South Sioux City, Neb., Norfolk, Neb., and Ft. Myers, Fla.
