On Friday, February 16th, John Maguire, President and CEO of Friendly’s, and Bobby Arruda, Chairman of the Franchisee Advisory Committee of Friendly’s, donated over $250,000 to Boys & Girls Club of America.

Over 250 Friendly’s restaurants in 14 states host fundraisers throughout the year to support Club programming across America, including Friendly’s in Auburn. The most recent donation, raised through the Valentine’s Day “Cones for Kids” campaign, will directly help children of B&GCA across the country by providing them with engaging experiences, support from caring adults, and impactful programs.

Throughout the year, those who wish to pay it forward to Club programming can receive “Kid Cards” or “Adult Coupon Books” in exchange for a $1 donation to B&GCA at their local Friendly’s. The next “Cones for Kids” campaign is slated to take place later this year.
