WENDY'S INTERNATIONAL, FT. LAUDERDALE DELIVERS TO BOCA HELPING HANDS

THANKSGIVING BASKET BRIGADE

 

The team at Wendy’s International, Area 148, Ft. Lauderdale spent Monday, November 22, at Boca Helping Hands. I asked Craig Schultz, Director of Area Operations for SE Florida Wendy’s, "What brought Wendy's to BHH?  Mr. Schultz said, “Dave Thomas, Wendy’s founder, left a legacy of giving back to the community. We want this to be an ongoing relationship with Boca Helping Hands. We were looking for a charity geared toward family and children.” 

Wendy’s arranged to have food drives in their 7 districts and 45 restaurants. They arrived in their cars and vans and delivered over 1,800lbs of food from their food drives.   This hard working team then proceeded to unload their cars and vans, weigh and load the food on to pallets, which were then taken up to our 2nd floor loft warehouse. A few of the team worked in the loft warehouse unloading the pallets and stacking up the supplies.  Mr. Schultz even coordinated his team, along with Boca Helping Hands Office Manager, Suzan Javizian, to fan out and pick up the many frozen turkeys and more food that was donated.

Thank you again to the great team at Wendy’s International, Area 148, Ft. Lauderdale for your hard work. We are so happy that you came by for a tour of Boca Helping Hands and choose us and our community to benefit from your generosity.   Boca Helping Hands looks forward to a wonderful new partnership with Wendy’s International.
