Employees from Burger King Worldwide headquarters in Miami spent the last few weeks of the year collecting donations for Toys for Tots, working with Habitat for Humanity and raising money for low-income students and their teachers.
"Burger King Worldwide was founded right here in Miami in 1954. Supporting the communities in our hometown has always been a top priority for the company," said Shelia Dudley, director of diversity and inclusion at Burger King Worldwide. "We all have the opportunity to help support those less fortunate in the communities where we work and live. Partnering with organizations like Toys for Tots, Habitat for Humanity and local schools allows us to amplify that impact."
For the Teacher Appreciation event, employees raised money for four local elementary schools and supplied local educators, primarily serving low-income South Florida communities, with nearly $40,000 worth of needed classroom supplies.
