Hamra Enterprises’ Wendy’s division has once again selected Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as its charity of choice for 2015. This is the second year for the partnership.
As a corporation that cares deeply for the welfare of children, Hamra Enterprise will raise funds throughout the year at each of its 35 Wendy’s locations to assist local children suffering from injuries and illnesses.
“We had a very successful campaign and partnership with Children’s Miracle Network in 2014 by raising over $42,000 total,” says Chuck Ocarz, president of Hamra Enterprises’ Wendy’s Division. We are looking forward to what is in store for 2015 with goals to raise even more for CMN this year.”
“We are humbled and grateful that we were selected as Hamra Enterprises’ charity of choice for the second year in a row,” says Tim Siebert, executive director of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at CoxHealth. “We depend on the generosity of businesses, individuals, foundations and organizations to bring hope and healing to children who might otherwise go without the medical attention they desperately need. We thank Hamra Enterprise’s for the care and compassion they are sharing with the children and families we serve.”
Hamra Enterprises’ Wendy’s locations will be selling $1 paper miracle balloons during the month of February. Additionally, customers can donate their change throughout the year in canisters placed near cash registers.
