Gringo’s Mexican Kitchen and Jimmy Changas will host “Every Queso Counts,” a fundraiser for Camp Hope, PTSD Foundation of America, on Thursday, June 27, in observance of PTSD Awareness Day.
The 17 restaurants will donate 100% of all queso appetizer sales from June 27 to Camp Hope, also matching the amount raised through purchases. All 13 Gringo’s and 4 Jimmy Changas locations will be participating.
In addition to donations made from queso sales, the company will also donate $1 for every share of the “Every Queso Counts” Facebook event. Gringo’s and Jimmy Changas goal for the day is to donate $75,000 to Camp Hope.
Gringo’s and Jimmy Changas are committed to reinvesting into both team members and the local community.
“Our hope is that “Every Queso Counts” brings further awareness to PTSD and helps combat the daily struggle that veterans and their families face,” said Russell Ybarra, president and CEO.
“This is the 5th year that we have hosted a major fundraiser for Camp Hope, we hope the community will join us in showing their support of our veterans.”
Camp Hope provides interim housing for veterans and their families in Houston along with a PTSD recovery program.
The Camp Hope community embraces our troops, veterans and their families as they seek the rewarding and fulfilling lives they so richly deserve which is proven with their 95% success rating.
