35 Culver’s Restaurants of SE Wisconsin to Contribute Ten Percent of Sales Tuesday, Nov. 20, to the Kapc Kids2Kids Christmas Toy Drive.
The public is encouraged to dine out at any participating Culver’s restaurant. Ten percent of their purchase price will be utilized to purchase toys at wholesale prices for children from low-income families in the Milwaukee area. Last year’s “Ten Percent of Sales Day” raised more than $18,000 for Kids2Kids Christmas.
- Culver’s Restaurants will also hold a toy drive at each participating restaurant through Dec. 13.
Kapco’s Kids2Kids Christmas Toy Drive, in partnership with Newsradio 620 WTMJ, is one of the largest toy drives held anywhere in Wisconsin.
All day on Tuesday, Nov. 20, diners throughout southeastern Wisconsin are encouraged to visit any participating Culver’s restaurant as 10 percent of their net purchase price will be contributed to the Hometown Heroes 501(c)3 non-profit organization in support of their Kids2Kids Christmas endeavor.
To provide further support to Kids2Kids Christmas, from Nov. 19 through Dec. 13, each of these 35 participating Culver’s restaurants will hold a toy drive. Patrons are encouraged to bring in a new, unwrapped toy that will be donated to a child in need in southeastern Wisconsin.
Kids2Kids Christmas is unique as this endeavor was specifically created to teach children the value of giving. Parents are encouraged to take their children shopping to select and purchase toys for children who are less fortunate in our community. The estimated 18,000 toys are donated to the Salvation Army and other non-profit organizations. All of the toys are ultimately distributed free of charge to thousands of children in southeastern Wisconsin. Kids2Kids Christmas not only makes an impact on the children who receive the toys, but helps instill the values of caring and giving in the children who donate the toys.
“Thanks to our friends at Culver’s, thousands of additional children in need in our community will have a much happier Christmas season. We encourage people throughout southeastern Wisconsin to support Kids2Kids Christmas by simply dining out at any participating Culver’s restaurant on November 20th. By doing so, they too will be helping children in need," said Jim Kacmarcik, Kapco Metal Stamping president and lead sponsor of the Kids2Kids Christmas Toy Drive.
