Sue Kiesewetter reports:
Two Butler County Chick-fil-A stores are among nine in Greater Cincinnati participating in a Liberty Township-based charity’s fundraiser to benefit orphan care worldwide.
All proceeds from any chocolate chunk cookie picked up or purchased Jan. 30 at Chick-fil-A will go to A Child’s Hope International’s orphan care program.
“We hope to be able to share some of the benefit with area groups such (as) Restavek Foundation Back2Back Ministries who care for orphans or kids in foster care,’’ said Larry Bergeron, founder. “It is only one day and we are hoping for a large turnout of people who care for the orphan, the fatherless and the vulnerable child.”
Cookies can be purchased in a one pack, 6-pack, 12-pack tray or 24-pack tray. Orders can be phoned in to any of the restaurants in advance for pickup on Jan. 30, or they can be ordered through the charity and delivered anywhere in the United States.
“Unlike ‘promotions’ that many are familiar with … where the company takes a huge slice of the profits, all of these proceeds will go directly to the children,’’ Bergeron said. “The question is this – will people care to help?”
Chick-fil-A restaurants are located at 7733 Voice of America Park Dr. in West Chester and at 3403 Princeton Road in the Bridgewater Falls shopping complex in Fairfield Township.
