March Loving Spoonful Fundraisers for Junior Achievement

  • Posted by: Tomato Head, Market Square Manager • March 5th, 2014

Thank you to everyone that came out in February for the launch of our charitable giving program Loving Spoonful. With your help, we raised $610 for WUTK.

In March, we’re partnering with Junior Achievement of East Tennessee and Highland Brewing Company from Asheville, NC.

Why Junior Achievement?

“We like the fit between Junior Achievement and Loving Spoonful because of our focus on nonprofits that work with kids,” said Tomato Head co-owner Scott Partin. “Junior Achievement of East Tennessee does an outstanding job helping school children understand the realities of work life through its in-class work and by immersing kids in a day at work using its Biz Town campus.”

“Tomato Head stepping up to host a series of fundraisers for us will help us not only financially but to have the opportunity to get interest from participants to possibly get involved in a volunteer role.  Both aspects will  allow us to provide quality JA experiences for even more students – and to meet the demand for our programs,”said Callie Archer, VP of Development of Junior Achievement of East Tennessee.

“We appreciate the support and are looking forward to growing the partnership to serve even more young people.  It’s a WIN, WIN, WIN situation –  customers win because they get to enjoy great food and beverages from Tomato Head, the company wins by being known as one that invests in their community, and most importantly, students win when they get a JA program!” 

You’ll have three opportunities to come out and show your support for the kids of Junior Achievement.

Be sure to save these dates!
