BURGER KING® Delivers More Than Just Great-Tasting Food To Miami Area Communities

Stocks in this article: BKW

Following the recent announcement that Burger King Worldwide (NYSE:BKW) is expanding its BK® Delivers program into the Miami market, the Miami-based company is delivering more than just great-tasting food to Miami residents. Among the company’s local community outreach programs is a recent employee-led donation to Toys for Tots, work with Habitat for Humanity and a Teacher Appreciation effort.

“Burger King Worldwide was founded right here in Miami in 1954. Supporting the communities in our hometown has always been a top priority for the company,” said Shelia Dudley, director of diversity and inclusion at Burger King Worldwide. “We all have the opportunity to help support those less fortunate in the communities where we work and live. Partnering with organizations like Toys for Tots, Habitat for Humanity and local schools allows us to amplify that impact.”

Toys for Tots:

Following a holiday toy drive at the Miami-based company’s headquarters, employees delivered toys to Toys for Tots. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate children that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive citizens.

Habitat for Humanity:

Burger King Worldwide employees have teamed up with Habitat for Humanity multiple times throughout the year to help with builds in the company’s hometown of Miami. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat for Humanity builds and rehabilitates simple, decent homes alongside its homeowner partner families.

Teacher Appreciation:

As local education budgets continue to decline, teachers are finding it increasingly difficult to provide appropriate resources for their students. In an effort to help close the academic achievement gap, Miami-based Burger King Worldwide sponsored a Teacher Appreciation Day at its headquarters and followed up with personal deliveries of school supplies to four local elementary schools, including Florida City Elementary, Douglas Elementary and Phillis Wheatley Elementary. All told, Burger King Worldwide supplied local educators, primarily serving low-income South Florida communities, with nearly $40,000 worth of classroom supplies needed to cultivate tomorrow’s leaders.
