Generous Supporters Give Back this Veterans Day
A number of businesses will contribute to the VFW
November 09, 2011
For the fifth consecutive year, participating Burger King® Restaurants will be raising funds for the VFW’s Unmet Needs Program throughout the month of November through the annual Burger King® Unmet Needs Fundraiser. Over 1,200 Burger King® Restaurants have participated since 2007 and have raised over $1.3 million in support of the program. Burger King® customers are encouraged to donate $1 or more at participating locations across the country as the proceeds will help military families in need pay for essentials such as rent/mortgage, utilities, medical expenses, vehicle repairs and food.
Also for the fifth consecutive year, Sport Clips — the official haircutter of the VFW — will donate $1 from every haircut now through November 13, to VFW's Operation Uplink as part of its National Cut-a-Thon. Sports Clips stores also offer a Heroes discount that includes active and retired military. Since 2007, Sport Clips has raised more than three-quarters of a million dollars through company and client donations, making more than 1.3 million calls possible for U.S. service members.
In its more than 600 restaurants across the United States, Bob Evans Restaurants will donate ten cents per hotcake sold on Friday, November 11. Proceeds from the promotion will benefit the VFW Foundation’s Return the Favor campaign, which honors, celebrates and supports active-duty military, veterans and their families.
