Arby’s restaurants in the greater Tucson, Ariz., area is launching its annual fundraising event for No Kid Hungry, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Junior Achievement of Tucson during the month of October. From now until Oct. 21, guests who visit any of the local Arby’s restaurants are invited to donate to the organizations.
The No Kid Hungry Dine Out campaign is organized by non-profit Share Our Strength; whose goal is to eliminate childhood hunger in the U.S. Money raised helps to feed students with school breakfast and afterschool meals as well through a summer meals program. This is Arby’s 6th year participating in the national program.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tucson’s goal is to help all children achieve success in life. They work to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally-supported, one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better.
Junior Achievement of Tucson works to empower future generations and give them the tools to succeed. Through its mentorship program, students learn the importance of money management, workforce readiness and entrepreneurial thinking.
“Giving back to the community is an important part of who we are and what we do,” said Jami Salyers, partner at Irish Beef, the Tucson franchisee. “We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the great people of Tucson, so it’s important that we pay-it-forward.”
For the last 30 years, Tucson Arby’s restaurants have had ongoing charity relationships with the local Tucson community. The restaurant recently concluded its annual fundraiser for United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) and raised over $26,000, and also presented the Community Food Bank with $3,500 from a recent funding drive. In total, Irish Beef has donated more than $80,000 to Tucson charities and is committed to giving back to the community.
