Since 2009, led by the Ingram family, White Castle has been feeding hunger, hopes and dreams in collaboration with Autism Speaks to change the lives of individuals and families affected by autism. As the first hamburger chain started in 1921, the company has grown to more than 375 “Castles” throughout the East Coast and Midwest. Over the past decade, White Castle has contributed over $8 million dollars through in-store campaigns and personal Ingram family donations, making them one of our largest and most dedicated Autism Speaks corporate partners to date.
In 2020, as we head into the fall to celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month in October and National Kindness Day on November 13th, we are lucky to have White Castle return with a three month long round-up fundraising campaign! Customers will be asked if they’d like to round-up their order total in-castle and via drive-thru to support Autism Speaks and the autism community. The campaign kicks off on October 13, 2020 and will run through January 13, 2021.
A HUGE thank you to White Castle and all the cravers that have contributed to this amazing partnership!
