Every day, the Arby’s Foundation strives to make a difference in the communities we serve. But on Make a Difference Day, we lean in to our commitment with a national call-to-action that encourages the entire Arby’s system to make a real, tangible difference on a local level across the country.
Make a Difference is one of our six core values and is ingrained in the fabric of the Arby’s system. On Make a Difference Day we put that value into action and extend our ‘happy-to-help’ attitude past the restaurants and into the hundreds of communities in which we live and work.
This year, participation nearly double compared to last year with nearly 1,700 volunteers across 75 markets. Among the dozens of projects, our team members built homes with Habitat for Humanity, organized beach clean-ups and served meals to those in need. They also read books to children, packed backpacks with donated school supplies and created a free-standing book lending kiosk.
Our restaurants are an integral part of hundreds of communities across the country. We are excited to continue our efforts in these local communities and proud of our team members’ commitment to live out our Make a Difference value.
