Culver’s says its ‘Scoops of Thanks Day’ held last month raised $144,975 for agricultural education. The Wisconsin-based restaurant chain announced that 760 restaurants served thousands of servings of frozen custard on September 24 in exchange for a small donation to the FFA.
Proceeds raised from the event will benefit local or state FFA chapters or other agricultural organizations selected by each restaurant.
“This year’s donation total exceeded the record of $112,000 held by 2018’s event, making 2020 the most successful Scoops of Thanks Day yet,” said Company Spokesperson Marcie Waters. “Culver’s is especially proud to have raised so much money during a time when it’s challenging for many FFA chapters to host fundraisers of their own.”
Scoops of Thanks Day is part of the Culver’s ‘Thank You Farmers’ program, an initiative that recognizes all farmers for their hard work and dedication in growing and producing the wholesome food that feeds our nation. To date, the program has raised over a million dollars in support of the National FFA Organization and Foundation, local FFA chapters and a variety of local agricultural organizations.
