CARNEGIE, Pa., Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Get them while you can! It is the perfect holiday gift. Where can you buy a stocking-stuffer for only one dollar that keeps giving all year long and benefits local families in need? For the sixth consecutive year, selected greater Pittsburgh-area Wendy's are stepping up to the plate and selling handy keytags for just one dollar that will benefit The Salvation Army's Western Pennsylvania Division and the American Red Cross Southwest Pennsylvania Region. And, the lucky recipient gets a free Wendy's Jr. Frosty for an entire year. Proceeds from sales through the end of 2012 will be equally divided between the charities for their good works in local communities.
"This promotion is a critical part of our Christmas Kettle Campaign," said Major William H. Bode, The Salvation Army's Western Pennsylvania Divisional Commander. "We are blessed to once again partner with both Wendy's and the American Red Cross and are excited to reap the benefits for the many families that we serve." Since the Wendy's Keytag program began, it has raised nearly $150,000 to support The Salvation Army's Western Pennsylvania Division's Christmas Campaign. Keytag sales begin on Monday, November 26 and last until the end of this year.
Both a church and a social service organization, The Salvation Army began in London, England in 1865. Today, it provides critical services in 125 countries worldwide. The 28-county Western Pennsylvania Division serves thousands of needy families through a wide variety of support services.
