Wendy’s of Santa Clarita began a fundraiser today in an effort to raise $10,000 or more for William S. Hart Union High School District schools. For a $1 donation to the school of the guest’s choice, Wendy’s will give each donor a plastic key tag good for a free junior Frosty with every purchase from now until June of 2012.
“If today’s kids are going to have the same opportunities we did, we have to be willing to help,” says Rob Montgomery, owner of the local Wendy’s. “This is an easy way for every member of the community to get involved. We have over 10,000 of these key tags available, and if we sell out quickly enough we’ll get more. Besides, how can you beat a deal where for just a buck you can get a free dessert with every order for over a year?”

Unlike some fundraising efforts, 100% of the donations collected will go to the Associated Student Body organizations of the schools the donors designate.
All of the schools in the WSHUHSD district are participating: Academy of the Canyons, Arroyo Seco JHS, Bowman HS, Canyon HS, Golden Oak Adult School, Golden Valley HS, Hart HS, La Mesa JHS, Learning Post, Placerita JHS, Rancho Pico JHS, Rio Norte JHS, Saugus HS, Sequoia Charter School, Sierra Vista JHS, Transitional Learning Center, Valencia HS, and West Ranch HS.
As an added incentive to participate, Wendy’s is donating an additional $500 each to the two schools that get the most donations, as measured either by percent of enrollment or by total amount donated.
All four Santa Clarita Wendy’s will be offering the key tags starting today:
27544 The Old Road (at Magic Mountain Parkway), 284-1635;
26538 Bouquet Canyon Road (in the Vons center at Newhall Ranch Road) 296-6553;
24525 Lyons Avenue (just east of Interstate 5 in Newhall) 284-1619;
28180 Newhall Ranch Road (at Copper Hill Road) 295-7710.
