In the month of August 2015, participating milliCare franchises located in the United States donated $1 for each chair they clean to Together We Rise, an organization supporting foster children and their families. International franchise locations will donate to a local charity of their choice benefitting children in need. We anticipated cleaning thousands of chairs through their 80 plus franchises across the world during the month-long program. With help from our clients, milliCare was able to raise over $32,000 for children in need around the world.
“milliCare is a franchise network that feels like a family, full of incredible owners, technicians and team members who care,” said milliCare Director of Franchise Network, Scott Hunter. “Partnering with Together We Rise for milliCare’s Month of Care CHAIRity campaign is a natural extension to our community care efforts. The funds raised in each milliCare market during the Month of Care will go directly back to that community to help local foster children and families. We are ecstatic to work with our clients and Together We Rise to give back to the communities we serve every day.”
Together We Rise works with hundreds of foster agencies and major corporations to help make a difference in the lives of foster children across the country. The foundation raises funds and awareness for foster care and gives children a sense of normalcy through situations of great transition in their lives. They have helped more than 10,000 foster youth across the country by providing new bicycles, college supplies and suitcases brighten their lives and assist in their transition to a new home.
“We are excited to be able to participate with milliCare in the national Month of Care campaign to help kids in foster care across the country,” said Together We Rise founder, Danny Medoza. “There is nothing better than when companies use their everyday practices to create support for thousands of kids who are often forgotten or neglected by the public. We are glad to be a part of this campaign.”
In addition to the CHAIRity campaign, milliCare partnered with Together We Rise for our annual franchise convention and built 50 new bicycles and 30 care packages for local foster children.
