On May 23, Whataburger Restaurants will celebrate National Burger Month by raising money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). From 5 to 8 p.m., Whataburger will donate 20 percent of sales, up to $100,000, to help children with muscle disease attend MDA summer camp.
"Whataburger believes in giving back to the communities we call home," said Pam Cox, group director of corporate communications for Whataburger. "We're fortunate to have the most generous customers, and with their support we hope to send some very special kids to MDA camp this summer for an unforgettable week."
MDA summer camps offer a wide range of activities specially designed for children who have limited mobility or use wheelchairs. It costs an average of $800 per camper to attend camp at no cost to their family.
The Whataburger fundraiser for MDA is part of Whataburger Serves, the chain's ongoing philanthropic initiative.
