Abuelo’s Mexican restaurants raised more than $11,000 for Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP), a non-profit organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors. Through Abuelo’s “Queso for Heroes” promotion, Abuelo’s donated $1 from every Chile con Queso appetizer that was sold throughout the Veterans Day weekend, November 11-13, to WWP.
"We are proud to support Wounded Warrior Project, which is raising awareness and helping to meet the needs of those brave men and women injured in the valiant call of service,” said Robert Lin, president of Food Concepts International, Abuelo’s parent company. "We are very appreciative to our guests who joined us over the Veterans Day weekend in helping to raise these funds for our nation’s servicemen and women.”
The purpose of Wounded Warrior Project is to raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.
