Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 01, 2012
For $1, customers at participating Wendy’s restaurants in the Los Angeles area can purchase an all-access pass to a year of free Jr. Frostys while supporting the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and its signature program, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids.
From March 1 through May 31, 2012 (while supplies last), customers can purchase a $1 Frosty key tag at participating Wendy’s throughout the Los Angeles/Palm Springs and Southern California area. By showing the key tag on subsequent visits to Wendy’s, customers will receive a free Jr. Frosty, with any purchase, as often as they wish through December 31, 2012. Wendy’s will donate the net proceeds of key tag sales to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption in support of its Wendy’s Wonderful Kids program.
“Every child deserves a family,” said Rita Soronen, president and CEO of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. “Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, a signature, results-driven program of the Foundation, is making a difference for thousands of children – one child at a time. We fund the work of adoption professionals in Los Angeles and throughout North America, who execute aggressive recruitment efforts targeted exclusively on moving children from foster care into adoptive families. These are children who, through no fault of their own, have been removed from their birth families and are waiting to be adopted.”
Ron Ross, president of Wendy’s Los Angeles Co-op said, “We strive to keep Dave Thomas’ ideas and beliefs at the heart of the Wendy’s culture. One thing that Dave believed was that everyone has a responsibility to give something back, to help those who can’t help themselves. Our Frosty key tag fund-raiser is one way of giving back to the community where we live and work.”
