From April 29 through June 30 (while supplies last), customers can purchase a Frosty key tag for $1, then show the key tag on subsequent visits to Wendy’s and receive a free Jr. Frosty with any purchase as often as they wish through December 31, 2013. Wendy’s will donate 50% of the net proceeds of key tag sales to local chapters of the American Red Cross.

(See below for complete list of participating Wendy’s).

“The Northeast PA Chapters of the American Red Cross are extremely grateful to Wendy’s and their customers for their generosity,” said Peter M. Brown, Regional CEO. “Through their support, community partners like Wendy’s help us to fulfill our mission of providing relief to victims of local disasters and helping people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.”

Kevin Jones, President of Wendy’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Co-op said, “Wendy’s founder, Dave Thomas, believed that everyone has a responsibility to give something back and to help those in need. We strive to keep Dave’s ideals and beliefs at the heart of the Wendy’s culture and our Frosty key tag fund-raiser is one way of giving back to the community where we live and work.”
