Inaugural Month-Long Tour Generates $200K for Non-Profit Skate for Change.
After traveling 8,000 miles, across 21 cities in five states, and handing out more than 50,000 hot dogs, Wienerschnitzel, the world’s largest Hot Dog chain, is proud to announce that it has matched the $100,000 in donations raised during the inaugural Hot Dogs for Homeless Tour.
The $200,000 contribution will benefit tour partner, Skate For Change, a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging youth to give back to the less fortunate in their communities.
Throughout the month of April, a Wienerschnitzel-wrapped RV, aptly named the “Wienerbago,” and the Hot Dogs for Homeless crew, visited shelters and cities across the west coast with heavy homeless populations to lift spirits and provide hot meals, socks and other necessities to those who needed it most. The tour also stopped at 20 high schools along the way, where the crew addressed close to 50,000 students about creating a positive change in their communities.
“The enthusiasm and selflessness we saw from the students and volunteers was inspiring, and together, we put a smile on the faces of those who needed it most,” said Wienerschnitzel Chief Visionary Officer, J.R. Galardi. “I’m looking forward to getting the team back together next year to do even bigger and better things!”
