Tuscarawas County, Ohio (WJER) - A restaurant chain is again coming through for an organization that matches up children and teens with the influence of a caring adult.
Owner Chris Lane says their seven area Wendy's locations will be donating 5 percent of their overall sales from Tuesday to Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Central Ohio. He says this will support crucial programs at Big Brothers Big Sisters.
“That mission is such a huge impact, that these children that are on waiting lists that need Bigs, that need a guiding force, they’re going to be the future of our community,” he says. “They’re going to be the people that we employ. They’re our high school students. They’re going to be the people that are raising our community to the next level.”
Lane says the giving goes along with the group’s biggest fundraiser of the year, Bowl for Kids’ Sake.
“That’s where the teams will show up, bowl their games. It can be individuals, it can be teams from corporations, it can be community teams, whatever it is, but these dollars go to fund the programming to support in-school and after-school matches,” he says.
The Dover Bowl for Kids’ Sake event will happen March 9th at Boulevard Lanes.
