This October, Hardee’s® restaurants across Virginia operated by Boddie-Noell Enterprises will join forces once again to raise funds to help Special Olympics athletes shine. Starting Oct. 1, Hardee’s customers who pay $1 for a paper pinup will receive a coupon sheet good for big savings on specific Hardee’s menu items. The paper pinups are displayed on the wall of each local restaurant.
---> The campaign will be supported by law enforcement officers across the state who will participate in “Cops-on-Rooftops” events at various Hardee’s locations to raise money. Be sure to “look up” as local law enforcement officers and state troopers will camp out on the ROOF of several Hardee’s locations to encourage donations. Stay tuned to this page or our Facebook page to find a Cops-on-Rooftops location near you. <---
Last year, Hardee’s across the state-owned and operated by Boddie-Noell raised more than $100,000 for Special Olympics Virginia. Boddie-Noell owns and operates all 181 Hardee’s franchise restaurants across Virginia. This will be the 39th year that Boddie-Noell Enterprises, the largest Hardee’s franchise operator in the United States, has partnered with Special Olympics Virginia, contributing in excess of $1.8 million to the organization during that time.
"As we celebrate the first year of the next half-century of Special Olympics, we are proud that Boddie-Noell Enterprises and Hardee’s are by our side,” said Rick Jeffrey, president of Special Olympics Virginia. “For 39 years, Boddie-Noell has helped Special Olympics Virginia and our now 25,000 athletes lead the charge for full inclusion – on and off the playing field. Boddie-Noell employees help raise funds, volunteer at events, prepare food for athletes and coaches and, most importantly, employ Special Olympics athletes and people with intellectual disabilities in their workplace. Boddie-Noell’s mantra is ‘We believe in people.’ Nobody does it better!”
“We’re thrilled to reach our 39th straight year of partnership and tradition with Special Olympics Virginia, thanks to the longtime support of our loyal Hardee’s customers across the state,” said Bill Boddie, Jr., director of Operations Services at Boddie-Noell and whose family and employees have been committed to Special Olympics Virginia for nearly four decades. “The bond we have with Special Olympics is special. Our customers have always stepped up year after year and contributed at our Hardee’s locations. We believe they’ll do so again.”
