Wendy's Teaming Up with MRL
Wendy’s Restaurant, Harrisonburg, is teaming up with Massanutten Regional Library next Wednesday, February 27, to feature “Massanutten Regional Library Night” at its Route 33 East location. For folks who choose to dine at the restaurant during the time slot of 5-8 pm, Manager Jimmy Shifflett will donate 15% of the proceeds directly to the Massanutten Regional Library system.
The Wendy character will also be on hand at the event to pass out free balloons to children. Wendy’s will also provide free combo meal and frosty coupons for library giveaway drawings on Wednesday as well.
According to MRL Community Relations Manager Cheryl Griffith, Wendy’s Manager Jimmy Shifflett approached Massanutten Regional Library and offered to "give back" to the community the restaurant serves. "It was so gracious of him to do this. He simply walked up to me and asked, 'What can I do to help our community libraries?'"
The public can also make a donation to Massanutten Regional Library at the Wendy’s location as well. A donation box will be set up for the public to contribute monetary funds for the seven library branch system. Brochures, flyers, bookmarks, and other library information will be made available to the public describing upcoming spring events within the Massanutten Regional Library system.
