BROOMFIELD, Colo., March 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Noodles & Company (NASDAQ: NDLS), known for its mission to nourish and inspire every team member, guest, and community it serves, announced today that all 58 of its Colorado restaurants will host a fundraiser on April 6 from 4 p.m. to close and donate 50% of sales* to the Colorado Healing Fund, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Colorado Healing Fund was founded by a group of victim advocates and community leaders to establish a secure way for the public to contribute to victims of the Boulder supermarket tragedy and other mass casualty crimes in Colorado.
The fundraiser will take place from 4 p.m. to close at all Noodles & Company locations in Colorado and includes all orders placed in-restaurant, online or via the Noodles Rewards app. In addition to the fundraiser, Noodles & Company has made it easy to give directly to the Colorado Healing Fund by including a link to the foundation's website at Noodles.com/GivingBackCO.
"Our hearts go out to the victims, families, first responders, law enforcement and all the people impacted by this senseless tragedy — we share in your pain and stand with the Boulder community," said Dave Boennighausen, chief executive officer at Noodles & Company. "We were founded in Boulder 25 years ago with the simple mission to nourish and inspire, and with every bowl of noodles served, the Boulder community has inspired us in return, showing us the best of humanity through the selfless, generous, unique, and loving people who live here. We care deeply about our communities and we are proud to call Boulder and the surrounding community home. As this community comes together to mend, we're committed to supporting the Colorado Healing Fund, which is dedicated to giving victims and their families the resources and support they need during this difficult time.
