Wendy’s fundraiser supports Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption

By From page A9 | January 22, 2012

For $1, customers at participating Wendy’s restaurants in the Sacramento area can purchase a key tag that entitles them to free Jr. Frostys through the month of May while supporting the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and its signature program, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids.

In South Davis, Wendy’s is at 1701 Cowell Blvd.

While supplies last, from January through Feb. 12, customers can purchase a $1 Frosty key tag at participating Wendy’s throughout the Sacramento region. 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 May 31.

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, in a news release. “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 Sacramento 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.”

Joe Johal, president of Wendy’s Sacramento 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 fundraiser is one way of giving back to the community where we live and work.”
