Farmer Boys presented a check to Loma Linda University Children's Hospital in the amount of $42,133.63 last week as part of the chain's 13th annual in-store fundraiser held in November. For the fundraiser, every Farmer Boys guest who made a donation received a coupon for 20 percent off any single purchase of $10 or more.
According to a news release, California's Loma Linda University Children's Hospital serves more than 175,000 critically ill or injured children each year. The donations will help maintain the hospital's Level 1 Regional Trauma Center, which provides families with the most advanced level of trauma care in the region.
"It's very gratifying to be able to support and give back to the neighborhoods and communities we serve. Each year the entire Farmer Boys brand works towards amass donation for this great charity. Everyone in the company is invested in the success of the fundraiser." said Ken Clark, president and chief operating officer of Farmer Boys.
Since 2000, Farmer Boys and its guests have raised over $383,491 for the Loma Linda University Children's Hospital. Each year Farmer Boys also sponsors the hospital's Annual Children's Day in May, where over 2,000 children participated in free demonstrations to learn about fire and water safety, as well as health awareness.
