CKE Restaurants – parent company of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s restaurants – kicks off its third annual Stars for Heroes fundraising campaign this month, harnessing the generosity of its customers, franchisees and company employees to rally behind the nation’s military families and veterans. Since its creation in 2011, Stars for Heroes has raised close to $2 million to support more than 40 military charities across the country.
From April 22 through May 12 at Hardee’s and April 24 through May 14 at Carl’s Jr., restaurant guests can donate $1 to support charities serving our nation’s military service members, including the American Red Cross. For each $1 donation, guests will receive a commemorative patriotic star-shaped cutout to personalize and place on display in the restaurant. They also receive restaurant coupons valued at more than $10 to use toward future purchases.
Red Cross Service to the Armed Forces (SAF) will receive 10% of the funds raised through this campaign nationwide.
Please visit your local Hardee’s or Carl’s Jr. during the fundraiser dates to purchase a star and show your support! The Red Cross thanks participating restaurants and its generous customers for their contributions. For more information, or to donate to the campaign online, visit Stars for Heroes on Facebook.
