Hardee’s Stores of Nebraska Raise $8,000 for Local Children’s Home Society

February 12, 2018

OMAHA, Neb. – February 8, 2018 – Westar Foods, Inc. is proud to donate $8,000 to Nebraska Children’s Home Society (NCHS). The check presentation will be made at Westar’s Omaha Hardee’s location on 145th Street at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, February 8th, 2018.

The donation is funded with 100% of the proceeds of the sale from Little Red Paper Stockings sold Thanksgiving through Christmas Day at all of the Westar Hardee’s Nebraska locations. Stores sold the $1 stockings in the seven stores. Customers purchasing a stocking received a coupon for a free drink. With this latest donation, the franchise will have donated nearly $52,000 since the Fall of 2012 to NCHS.

Stores made it their mission to meet and exceed last year’s Red Stocking sales of approximately $7,100, even making it a little competitive between them. Pat Goodman, the General Manager of this Omaha Hardee’s location says, “Each and every day is important to the kids, but the holidays can be especially tough. The thought of a child in need of help, no matter the circumstance, right here in our state of Nebraska, is a huge driving factor in the sale of the stockings.”

Established in 1893, Nebraska Children’s Home Society’s mission is “to provide safe and loving care to children of all ages.” Through Adoption, Foster Care, Family Support and Early Childhood Education programs, NCHS provides comprehensive child welfare services throughout the state of Nebraska. Last fiscal year, NCHS served more than 9,400 individuals through 10 offices. The organization remains the only adoption agency in the United States to provide cost-free adoptions.
