The team of Tampa Bay Tijuana Flats Burrito Co. and their internal charitable organization, the Just In Queso Foundation, delivered a check to the Children's Cancer Center today for $2,450 – - now that's enough to make us say 'cheese!'
The donation is only the first in a year-long campaign devised by Nate McCabe, Area Supervisor of Tijuana Flats Burrito Co., and Ben Kuykendall, Development Manager of Just In Queso Foundation. The first year committment – between the Foundation and a series of both monthly and quarterly contributions from nine Bay area restaurants – will be to the tune of $12,000.
“We’re so excited about the deepening partnership with both Tijuana Flats and Just In Queso," said Steve Manuel, CCC Director of Development. "The Tampa Bay children and families we serve will benefit substantially as as result of this generous social giving campaign.”
The funds are earmarked for a new CCC program called FUELING FAMILIES which provides gas and grocery cards to families throughout the year and especially during the holidays when financial pressures are at their greatest.
On behalf of all the families we serve, please support these Bay area businesses as our way of saying THANK YOU to Tijuana Flats Burrito Co. and Just In Queso Foundation!
