Dinner Decision Made Easy: Support Children In Foster Care With Wendy's
Wendy's celebrates National Adoption Night by raising funds for Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption during National Foster Care Month

DUBLIN, Ohio, May 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

WHAT:  

Imagine if helping children in foster care was as easy as eating dinner. Well, good news! TONIGHT - Tuesday, May 8 - it is! In recognition of National Foster Care Month, 15% of restaurant sales from customers who visit a participating Wendy's® for dinner will be donated to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption®, an organization committed to finding permanent, loving homes for children waiting in foster care.




As an adopted child himself, Wendy's founder Dave Thomas created the Foundation because he believed that children in foster care "aren't someone else's responsibility, they are our responsibility." Today, Wendy's remains committed to this belief and mission, and supports the organization through in-restaurant activations, partnerships and donations.
