MCLEAN, VA — During the month of October, scores of KFC restaurants are selling $40 coupon books for a dollar. Buying a book not only gets customers plenty of food and drink, but indirectly supports children of deployed and wounded military members.
This is the fourth year that KBP Foods, a chain operating 359 KFC and multi-brand restaurants across 14 states, has partnered with Our Military Kids, a nonprofit giving grants for sports, fine arts and tutoring. These services nurture and sustain children while their parents are serving in hostile areas of the world or recovering from injuries sustained during service.
“The goal in 2016 is to raise $250,000,” said Linda Davidson, executive director for Our Military Kids. “We’ve been so impressed with the commitment, energy and passion of the entire KBP Foods team. KBP Foods has been a wonderful partner. Not only are they successful in raising significant funds to support the grant program, but they also help remind our military families that a grateful nation thanks them for their service and sacrifice.”
