SAVANNAH -- Arby's is launching a national community fundraiser to raise money and awareness for youth-mentoring, and area residents may use it to make a difference in their own local communities.
Through June 30, customers who visit Arbyí' restaurants in Savannah,  Richmond Hill, Pooler, Hinesville, Rincon and Tybee Island may donate $1 and sign a "Help Us Help Kids" pin-up to hang on the wall of the restaurant. Money raised will support the newly formed Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Coastal Empire.  Last year, Arby's raised more than $1.6 million nationwide through its pin-up campaign.
"We are challenging all members of the Coastal Empire community to reach out and lend a hand to our children by making a donation at their local Arbyís," said Dr. Malik Watkins, board chairman of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Coastal Empire.  "This fundraiser is an important part of our agency's funding.  Through a $1 donation, Arby's and local residents unite to help transform the lives of the Coastal Empire's young people."
"We've always believed in the power of giving back to the communities that we serve," said Greg Hawkins, senior vice president of community partnerships, Arby's Restaurant Group, Inc. "Arby's is proud to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Coastal Empire in their mission to serve children in need with one-to-one mentors."
