Great Books for Great Kids Fundraiser

Make plans to dine out and lend a helping hand. On Tuesday, August 25th, Runza Restaurants will conduct its thirteenth annual Great Books for Great Kids fundraiser. 15% of the day’s total sales will benefit the Holdrege Area Public Library. Last year, over $45,000 was raised to benefit children in communities with Runza locations and over the last twelve years over $362,000 has been donated.

Runza Restaurants has been a long time supporter of reading. “Reading is vital to lifelong success and provides an excellent opportunity for families to spend time together,” stated Becky Perret, Director of Marketing for Runza National. “Donating funds for books and promoting literacy is an important endeavor for the children and the community.”

The Holdrege Area Public Library will be using the funds donated to upgrade the collections in the Children’s and Teen library. “The Library highly values the continued support of Runza Restaurants,” stated Cindy Gitt, Youth Librarian. Children who are read to at a young age are more likely to continue to be readers throughout their lifetime. Runza Restaurant’s donation will assist the library in providing quality materials for our inquisitive readers’ minds.”
