Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) May 18, 2016
eegee's is proud to announce the beneficiary of the 24th annual Coupon Card program is the Johnjay & Rich Care for Kids Foundation.
Every year during the entire month of June, eegee’s provides customers the opportunity to support a local not-for-profit organization. In appreciation of each $7 donation a customer makes, eegee's will reward them with a coupon booklet valued at up to $48 in savings.
For 2016, eegee’s selected an organization whose services are vital to helping those in need in Southern Arizona. The Johnjay and Rich Care for Kids Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for children living within the foster care system by offering assistance, comfort and hope.
"As a Tucson-based company, eegee’s is proud to continue this program for the 24th year,” said Robert Santiago, Director of Marketing, eegee’s. “The Coupon Card allows us to reward our customers’ generosity and support Southern Arizona based organizations that provide valuable services and benefits to people in need to help make life better in our local community.”
For 45 years, eegee's and their employees have striven to lead by example in the area of social and environmental responsibility. In 2015, eegee's customers donated over $241,000 to BAGIT!, Ben’s Bells and Kick Cancer for Stephen through the Coupon Card program.
“With nearly 20,000 children in foster care in Arizona, we are honored to be the recipient of the eegee's coupon card this year so we may further support children who are facing life in the Arizona Foster Care, said Johnjay & Rich of 93.7 KRQ. Our goal is to one day have more foster families waiting for children than children waiting for families.”
You are invited to attend a press conference on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at 1:00 pm. Representatives from eegee’s and The Johnjay and Rich Care for Kids Foundation will discuss the 2016 Coupon Card Program and the mission of their organization.

About Johnjay & Rich Care for Kids Foundation
The Johnjay & Rich Care for Kids Foundation and #LoveUp Program supports the nearly 20,000 foster children in Arizona by raising awareness for the need for foster and adoptive families to provide safe and loving homes these children. The foundation works closely with the Department of Child Safety by supporting the Children’s Heart Gallery photo shoots and creation of galleries for those children whose biological ties have been severed from their families in hopes to find them a forever home. The goal for the foundation is that one day there will be more foster and adoptive families waiting for children than children waiting for families.
