Hamra Enterprises’ Wendy’s division has once again selected Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as its charity of choice for 2017.
The partnership, now in its fourth year, raised nearly $100,000 for CMN Hospitals in 2016 – funds that greatly benefited local children and their families.
“We had a very successful campaign and partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 2016,” said Chuck Ocarz, president of Hamra Enterprises’ Wendy’s Division. “We are looking forward to what is in store for 2017 with goals to meet and hopefully exceed what we raised in 2016 for CMN Hospitals.”
As a corporation that cares deeply for the welfare of children, Hamra Enterprises will raise funds throughout the year at each of its 35 Wendy’s locations to assist local children suffering from injuries and illnesses. Funds are raised through the sale of $1 paper miracle balloons during certain months, which are currently on sale through April 23. Canisters are also placed near cash registers throughout the year where customers can donate their change.
“We are humbled and grateful that we were selected as Hamra Enterprises’ charity of choice for the fourth 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 Enterprises for the care and compassion they are sharing with the children and families we serve."
