A fundraising event at the Yorktown Burger King has resulted in a $330.00 donation to the Alliance for Safe Kids (ASK), a local nonprofit that promotes awareness and prevention for destructive behaviors to teens, including substance use, bullying, and digital safety.
The “Dining to Donate” event was held March 31 at Burger King located at 385 Downing Drive. Twenty percent of the evening’s sales were donated to ASK, who was joined by officers from the Yorktown Police Department to greet customers and engage with the community.
“ASK would like to thank the team at the Yorktown Burger King for their support of our work within the community.” said Erica Stanzione, Director of Communications and Partnerships at ASK. “Not only did they host this wonderful ‘Dining to Donate’ event, they also supplied bottled water for all of our Save A Life attendees on April 2.”
With federal grant funds about to expire, ASK is reaching out to the generosity of local businesses, churches, organizations and individuals for monetary donations as well as community service time.
ASK is a not-for-profit organization that has been operating in Yorktown since 2002. ASK is a coalition representing all sectors of our community working together to provide a safety net for youth and families. They are located in the French Hill Building, 2051 Baldwin Rd.
