Orange Leaf Aims to Provide One Million Meals to Hungry Kids
OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — For the third consecutive year, Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt is partnering with the national non-profit No Kid Hungry® to help raise awareness and money to end childhood hunger in America.
Orange Leaf’s goal is to provide one million meals to hungry kids in America during September, which is National Hunger Awareness month. Every $1 donation equals 10 meals for a hungry child. Orange Leaf is asking its customers to join the fight to end childhood hunger by donating three different ways and getting something back in return at Orange Leaf’s more than 300 locations across the U.S.
“With one in five children in America struggling with hunger, it is very important for us to give back to the communities we serve,” said Geoff Goodman, president of Orange Leaf. “We are focused on two things this September: to raise funds to provide one million meals to hungry children and to also raise awareness for this great cause during National Hunger Awareness Month. I am eager to see what we will achieve.”
Three ways customers can join the fight to end childhood hunger:
Purchase a limited-edition collectible cup for $1 in Orange Leaf stores, with proceeds benefiting No Kid Hungry.
Purchase a pin-up for $3 at participating locations with a complimentary $1 off coupon to be used on the customer’s next visit. Purchase a limited edition t-shirt for $10 via www.booster.com/orangeleaf with proceeds benefiting No Kid Hungry and receive a Buy One Get One Free offer via email for their next visit to Orange Leaf.
From Sept. 21-27, Orange Leaf leadership and team members at its headquarters in Oklahoma City will also host the second annual Dine Out OKC event to encourage local restaurants to participate in raising awareness and funds for No Kid Hungry.
