18 Wendy’s Locations Hold November Fundraiser for Leader Dog

Leader Dogs for the Blind is partnering with Wendy’s franchisees Lisa and Howard O’Brien to raise funds in support of Leader Dog’s programs for people who are blind or visually impaired.

Simply donate $1 to Leader Dogs for the Blind and you will receive a $1 off coupon for a full-sized combo meal or salad on your next visit. This fundraising initiative will run November 1–16 at 18 Wendy’s locations in Southeast Michigan.

“Wendy’s is all about giving back. By partnering with Leader Dogs for the Blind, Wendy’s employees and customers connect with their local community, fueling their passion to make a difference,” says Lisa O’Brien.

“We are fortunate to have great supporters like the O’Briens,” says Susan Daniels, Leader Dogs for the Blind president and CEO. “Not only will Wendy’s employees help by raising needed funds, they help us raise awareness in the community about the services we provide.”
