Burgerville supports United Way with all-day partnership March 29Posted March 22nd, 2012
United Way of the Columbia-Willamette will receive a percentage of sales from all 38 Burgerville locations on Thursday, March 29, to support the nonprofit’s work to advance the common good and create a better life for everyone. The fundraising event is part of Vancouver-based Burgerville’s annual employee giving campaign.
“Working with local organizations committed to making a difference in health, education and quality of life is an important core value of our company and integral in creating sustainable, thriving communities,” says Jeff Harvey, president and CEO of Burgerville. “We know our customers will join us in supporting United Way.” Harvey added that Burgerville cardholders who make a purchase before 11 a.m. will generate another five cents for the program.
Burgerville has 31 locations in the Portland/Vancouver area, where United Way of the Columbia-Willamette works. Employees of United Way of the Columbia-Willamette will visit a number of Burgerville locations on March 29 to thank guests and answer any questions about United Way’s work in education, income and health in the community. For more than 35 years, Burgerville and United Way have partnered together to raise money for local communities and people in need.
