TAMPA, Fla. – Score free food for donating to a great cause at participating Tampa Bay Taco Bell restaurants.
On Tuesday, participating Taco Bell restaurants officially kicked off their annual fundraising campaign to support the Armed Forces Families Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping military families.
The fundraiser, which involves over 400 Taco Bell and IHOP locations across the south east U.S., will last through Nov. 21.
Taco Bell enthusiasts wishing to support military families may do so by purchasing a paper icon for $1 or more, donors will receive a coupon for a free soft or crunchy original seasoned beef taco. The coupons are good for the donor’s next visit and are available while supplies last.
Unlike many non-profits, the Armed Forces Families Foundation guarantees every cent it raises are used to benefit military members and their families in the community which they are raised. The organization is run entirely by volunteers and its corporate sponsors cover the charities operating costs.
The Armed Forces Families Foundation has given back over $2 million towards projects benefiting military members, veterans and their families, including $46,000 in funds to install a new playground, accessible to over 300 families stationed on MacDill Airforce Base.
