The commitment of Qdoba Mexican Eats to the community it serves continues into the new year. On January 8, 2019, JennaRae Akers, Director of Marketing, presented a check for $500 to the Sheridan Community Land Trust – a contribution from a Food For Funds Night held in December.
“We enjoy using the trails,” Akers said as to why Sheridan Community Land Trust was one of eight community organizations Qdoba selected for the second year of its Food For Funds program. She explained that Food For Funds was conceived of as a way to give back to nonprofit organizations whose missions are not only near and dear to her family’s hearts, but who positively impact a large number of people in the Sheridan area.
Qdoba’s Food For Funds program continues on Monday, Jan. 14, where Meadowlark Elementary will be the featured community organization as well as Highland Park Elementary on Feb. 11 and Woodland Park Elementary on Feb. 25.
On those nights, 25% of the dollar amount of guests’ order will be donated to the featured organization when the guests mention the feature organization at the register. In seven months, Food For Funds has raised over $7,000 for local community organizations.
“In a community that’s filled with fantastic organizations, we’re honored to be selected by Qdoba for a program like Food For Funds,” remarked Mike Evers, Sheridan Community Land Trust President. “Our goal is to make it easier for people living in and visiting Sheridan to enjoy the outdoors through the Red Grade, Soldier Ridge, and Tongue River trail systems while conserving the open spaces and working ranchlands that make our community a special place. This donation helps us accomplish those goals, and for that, we’re grateful. Thank you, Qdoba.”
Akers agreed, “Our family loves to be outdoors and we believe in what Sheridan Community Land Trust is doing.” She concluded, “They help make Sheridan an even better place.”
