Helping Out and Having Fun
We’re really thrilled about what’s happening at Red Robin Group, and we want to share with you all some of the reasons why. Spring is here and summer is on the way—this means warmer weather; people getting excited about buying and selling homes; festival season in Atlanta; plus tons of opportunities to give back to this city, to this community that we so dearly love. We’re jumping in and hope you will join us!
For starters, we’re taking part in a new venture led by Action Ministries called Smart Lunch, Smart Kid. Did you know that over 800,000 Georgia children rely on free or reduced-priced lunches in order to receive proper nutrition during the school year? Have you ever stopped to think about what happens to these kids during the summer break? Through the Childhood Nutrition Initiative, we’ll be working with a great group of organizations and volunteers to provide healthy meals to these children—over 100,000 will be distributed throughout the summer months. For our part, we’re starting off by packing and donating 100 lunches on May 31st to Inman Park United Methodist off Edgewood Avenue. Throughout the summer, we hope and plan to be an impacting, contributing factor to the fight against childhood hunger right here in Atlanta.
We attended a media launch today to learn more about the program, and you can learn more too by checking out this video.
We’re also going to have tons of fun taking advantage of the myriad community events coming up…and we’ll be giving away free stuff to all our neighbors! The East Atlanta Beer Festival is this Saturday, May 19th, and Red Robin is a sponsor. We’d love to see you under the shade of our tent, snagging free stuff…or even better, manning the Red Robin cornhole game for a chance to be entered into our raffle!
We’re really excited about getting out and about this spring and summer, having fun with our neighbors and giving back to the community that has supported our success over the years. Follow us on Facebook for updates on other neighborhood events where you can catch Red Robin!
