During a recent two-week campaign, Utah Del Taco restaurants raised $10,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, $1 at a time, by selling paper shoes. Customers put their names on paper shoes that were then hung on the walls of the restaurants.
The West Salt Lake Del Taco, managed by Donna Lockhorst, raised the most money at $1,200. In total, more than 9,300 customers and employees contributed to the JDRF fundraiser.
“As a member of the community, Del Taco strives to serve families with the highest level of customer service, quality and commitment. This also means reaching beyond our restaurants and we are honored to make this contribution to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation to help find a cure,” says Paul Hitzelberger, president of Utah Del, Del Taco franchisee and owner of the 19 participating restaurants.
