Our Central Texas Wendy’s client filmed a segment this week with KCEN (the Waco-Temple-Killeen NBC affiliate). On May 23rd, they are running an all-day phonebank to raise money and awareness of the United Service Organization (USO) at Fort Hood. For those who don’t know, Fort Hood spans much of the middle of the state of Texas. It’s huge. Look on a Google map and look at the gray area in the middle of Texas. That’s it. It’s the home to III Corps (pronounced “three core”) and thousands of troops and their families.
As many are coming home from overseas, our client wanted a way to give back and support them. We tailored a Wendy’s Frosty Key Tag promotion for them, and this is the third year of supporting the USO at Ft. Hood. Here’s how it works. Go to Wendy’s and buy a Frosty key tag for $1. The proceeds will go directly to the USO at Ft. Hood; the funds stay here in Texas supporting our troops. What do you get out of it? Well, this year, at participating Texas Wendy’s, just show your key tag at the register and get a free Jr Frosty with any purchase! The USO key tags will be sold at Waco, Temple, Killeen and Copperas Cove Wendy’s from the week of Memorial Day through July 4th. Over the past two years, Central Texas Wendy’s has raised over $15,000 for the USO at Ft. Hood!
P.S. This year, you can buy and redeem a Wendy’s Frosty key tag at any participating Wendy’s in Texas! Some are selling them right now.
P.P.S. Fries and a Frosty are particularly good on the hot summer days.
P.P.P.S. I’ll have a #2 Dave’s Hot N’ Juicy (no ketchup), large fry, large Coke, Frosty Key Tag and a Jr. Frosty!
