TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Union Health Foundation and Chick-fil-A will hold a fundraiser, titled UHF Spirit Day, Sept. 7 to raise money for children’s health.
Next Tuesday, 100% of sales from all mobile orders completed at Chick-fil-A Terre Haute will be donated to Union Health Foundation’s Pediatric Therapy Fund. The fund provides financial aid to families struggling to provide children with critical therapy services, according to a news release.
“This fund provides the opportunity for children to receive therapy that is deemed medically necessary,” Union Hospital Site Coordinator Kirsten Ford said. “Without this fund, the children would go without needed services and ultimately limit optimal improvements and development.”
Orders through the Chick-fil-A app can be placed for store takeout, drive-thru pick-up or dine-in. In addition, catering orders can be placed for Sept. 7 on the app, with a minimum 24 hour’s notice, and also count towards the donation.
“It is our belief that financial hardships shouldn’t prevent children from receiving the essential services they need to achieve a greater quality of life,” Foundation Executive Director Joel Harbaugh said. “We are extremely thankful.”
The Foundation is encouraging local businesses to order breakfast, lunch or dinner for employees through the mobile app and share support on social media by tagging Terre Haute Chick-fil-A and using the hashtags #ChickenTherapy and #UHFDay.
In addition to UHF Day, donations to the Pediatric Therapy Fund can also be made online at www.UnionHealthFoundation.org or Texting KIDS to (888) 991-1896.
