Raising Cane pitches in to raise funds for JDRF

Raising Cane

The seven Valley Raising Cane locations earlier this month hosted its semi-annual community drive to benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

The “Spring Dollar Donation Drive” to benefit JDRF was conducted along with MRG Marketing & Management, Inc., the Southwest franchise partner of Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers.

From May 4 to May 17, customers were encouraged to enjoy their favorite chicken finger meal and donate a dollar to benefit JDRF. (Special to the Independent)

From May 4 to May 17, customers were encouraged to enjoy their favorite chicken finger meal and donate a dollar at the register for the cause. Through monetary donations and continued support, Raising Cane’s aims to help JDRF in its quest to raise awareness about the life-threatening illness.

JDRF is the leading global organization funding Type 1 Diabetes research. JDRF’s goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until it achieves a world without T1D.

JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, regulatory influence and working plan to better treat, prevent and eventually cure T1D.

More than 3 million Americans are affected by T1D and increase each year, with the prevalence among children expected to increase by 3 percent annually worldwide.
