KidsPeace Foster Care in Ithaca, NY, Receives Support from Buffalo Wild Wings
The KidsPeace Foster Care office in Ithaca, NY, has been very fortunate to be the focus of a month-long fundraiser by Buffalo Wild Wings Restaurant in Ithaca. Every Wednesday in August, KidsPeace has been distributing information about the foster care program to customers. There is a table at the entrance staffed by KidsPeace Foster Care employees, and KidsPeace posters and balloons adorn the restaurant. This is a wonderful source for recruiting potential foster parents and educating the community about the mission of KidsPeace Foster Care.
As part of the promotion, each time a customer turns in a KidsPeace “ticket” as they pay their bill, Buffalo Wild Wings is donating a percentage of that sale to KidsPeace. If anyone forgets to hand in a ticket, the restaurant staff has been wonderful about reminding them to ensure that KidsPeace receives a share of the total sale. It has been a great introduction to the community, thanks to Family Resource Specialist Jo Ann Myer-Foland and her son Mark who works at Buffalo Wild Wings.
Additionally, Buffalo Wild Wings has donated items including bottles of their famous wing sauce to go into a basket that will be raffled off on August 31. There are still two Wednesdays left to sample the delicious wings and contribute to KidsPeace Foster Care. The restaurant is located at 410 Elmira Road in Ithaca.
KidsPeace is very excited that Buffalo Wild Wings will be holding a similar fundraiser for KidsPeace Foster Care in Elmira soon and at another site later in the fall.
KidsPeace is very grateful to Buffalo Wild Wings Restaurants for their kindness and assistance to the children of Ithaca who are waiting for a loving foster home.
