Caring for Kids

Our Caring for Kids Campaign is a tradition that’s close to the hearts of our team members and our guests. This annual five-week fundraising campaign benefits children’s hospitals in the communities we serve and runs through Saturday, December 8, 2018. This year, we are raffling off a 2018 Ford EcoSport, donated by our friends at Neighborhood Food Store. You can purchase a raffle ticket for $2 at your neighborhood Eat’n Park and may see the complete rules by clicking here.

There are so many fun activities happening in our restaurants to support the Campaign- please check out our blog to find out what’s happening in your neighborhood. Or, of course, just stop into your local Eat’n Park and speak with the manager for more details. While you’re there, check out our limited-edition merchandise,the proceeds of which benefit Caring for Kids. We have great stocking stuffers, like Smiley embossed ceramic mugs and iconic Christmas Star long-sleeved t-shirts.
