PDQ (People Dedicated to Quality) is partnering with Urban Ministries of Wake County to provide food to those in need for the entire month of August. To help support this great organization and their local community, PDQ Wake Forest and PDQ Falls of Neuse Rd. will be giving a bounce back card that can be redeemed on your next visit for your choice of hand breaded tenders, a fresh-tossed salad, or a made-to-order sandwich for every canned food donation.
Urban Ministries of Wake Forest serves 27,000 clients per year, including 11,000 children. PDQ wants to give their guests the opportunity to make a huge difference in the lives of families in Wake County and in return they will get some free fresh food.
“When we were approached with the opportunity to partner with Urban Ministries of Wake County, it truly warmed my heart. Our goal has always been to be a community partner and support those around us the best that we can,” said Amy Foley, Operating Director of PDQ Falls of Neuse and PDQ Durham.
“We are so thankful for the support we have received from our PDQ guests during past promotions like our Book Drive for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and our partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation,” said Moe Kong, PDQ Wake Forest Operating Director. “It is so uplifting to be part of a community that comes together as a family and we look forward to seeing the same results with our upcoming Urban Ministries Canned Food Drive.”
Urban Ministries provides over 250 neighbors in Wake County with food each week so there is a need to collect as many donations as possible. Urban Ministries engages our community to serve and advocate on behalf of those affected by poverty by providing food and nutrition, promoting health and wellness, and by laying the foundations of home. Urban Ministries has requested that donations are low in sodium, fat, and sugars to help the people they serve live a healthy lifestyle. All donations are welcome and will make a difference in the lives of local families.
