Noodles & Company, known for serving noodle and zoodle dishes from around the world, today announced it has hosted 498 fundraisers to-date in 2019, with several hundred more slated before the end of the year. The fast-casual restaurant chain is known for teaming up with community organizations across the U.S. every month for fundraising events.
This holiday season, Noodles & Company will give back in a big way by hosting as many fundraisers as possible in local restaurants across the country for National Day of Giving, also known as Giving Tuesday, on December 3, 2019. Noodles is inviting any community non-profit that wishes to hold a fundraiser on Giving Tuesday to apply.
"We've raised more than $100,000 from hundreds of fundraisers across the country so far in 2019, and we want to go bigger than ever this Giving Tuesday," said
Jonathan Tress, vice president of marketing at Noodles & Company. "We're grateful to have worked hand-in-hand with local communities to nourish our neighbors nationwide over the past 24 years, and feel fortunate to continue doing so."
Local community organizations wishing to partner with Noodles & Company on Giving Tuesday are invited to apply at www.noodles.com/giving-back by November 2, 2019. One organization will be selected per location. Fundraisers will take place from 4 - 8 p.m. on December 3. Guests can participate simply by dining at any participating Noodles restaurant and mentioning the fundraiser at checkout, and Noodles will donate 25 percent of all fundraiser sales back to the local organization. All partner organizations must be a non-profit.
Noodles' call for holiday partners comes right on the heels of its support for No Kid Hungry during September, Hunger Action Month. Noodles & Company raised more than $450,000 for the organization from its fundraising efforts last month, also contributing to more than $2.2 million donated by Noodles since its partnership with No Kid Hungry started in 2016.
