Tri-Cities, TN/VA. (March 6, 2021) -- Over the last several months, Arbico has had the opportunity to raise funds for many great local organizations. Our efforts were recognized by the Arby’s Foundation: Arbico was named a Foundation Franchisee award winner for our recent philanthropy work, alongside just 27 Arby’s franchisees system-wide. We're honored to receive this award and to assist the many worthy non-profits in our community.
Nearly $70,000 Raised
At the end of 2020, Arbico had a big hand in securing nearly $70,000 for local children’s charities. Our fall Make A Difference Campaign raised $30,367; in October, the Arby’s Foundation’s Fundraising Champion, Chanelle Whitaker (Jonesborough), saw that a $10,000 grant from the Foundation went to Second Harvest Food Bank, a donation Arbico matched, bringing the total to $20,000; and in December, our fundraising campaign for Bristol Motor Speedway Children’s Charities raised $19,203.
Niswonger Children’s Hospital
On March 2, Arbico also held a fundraiser for Niswonger Children’s Hospital, raising $2,900. That is $650 more than last year. Since 2016, we’ve proudly raised almost $14,000 for Niswonger.
Thank you to the Arby's Foundation for the Foundation Franchisee award, and to our generous guests for partnering with us in assisting children in our community.
