All funds raised from the sale of $1 Wish Stars at participating Jack
in the Box restaurants will grant wishes for Arizona kids
PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the third year in a row, Jack in the Box® is partnering with
Make-A-Wish® Arizona to help grant wishes for children living in Arizona
with life-threatening medical conditions.
Throughout the month of March, more than 160 Jack in the Box restaurants
in the Phoenix and Tucson areas, as well as locations in Lake Havasu
City and Flagstaff, will sell $1 Wish Stars in hopes of raising enough
funds to grant at least 10 Arizona wishes.
“As a member of the Make-A-Wish Arizona Board of Directors, I’ve seen
firsthand the positive impact a wish can have on a child going through a
very difficult time,” said Adam Stine, Jack in the Box Franchise
Operator. “Thanks to the generous support of our Arizona franchisees,
restaurant teams and customers, I’m confident we can raise enough funds
to grant more wishes than ever.”
“For the past three years, Jack in the Box customers and employees have
opened their hearts to donate funds to grant wishes for Arizona kids in
need of hope, strength and joy,” said Elizabeth Reich, chief executive
officer and president of Make-A-Wish Arizona. “Our partnership with Jack
in the Box has helped grant more than 20 wishes in the past two years,
and we hope their guests and employees will continue that level of
generosity to grant 10 more this year!”
Jack in the Box will launch the campaign in restaurants on March 1st.
