“Culver’s Cares Days” to Benefit Red Cross’ Disaster Relief Fund

June 30, 2008

Culver\'s Day of Giving

Culver’s Restaurants are banding together again for the benefit of the American Red Cross’ Disaster Relief Fund. Culver’s restaurants of the Rock River Valley are among more than 370 Culver’s restaurants donating 10 percent of their respective sales on Tuesday, July 1 to their local participating American Red Cross chapter.

The Rock River Chapter will then use 100 percent of the funds to provide immediate relief to victims of disasters such as the recent Midwestern Floods.

Guests can enhance the total Red Cross contribution by giving personal donations in canisters available at stores.
