Dec. 27, 2016—The Driven Brands Charitable Foundation recently stopped by Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, in an effort to brighten the holidays for patients. Employees from Driven Brands brought gifts to every inpatient child at the hospital, thanks to the company’s annual holiday auction, which raised more than $15,000 in 2016.
Five representatives from Driven Brands delivered gifts to children, including games, stuffed animals, Legos and more. The hospital has approximately 150 children as inpatients each day. The Driven Brands Charitable Foundation (DBCF) also made donations to a pair of additional children’s hospitals: SickKids Canada, and the Children’s Hospital in New Orleans, with funds from its aforementioned auction.
Finally, the Driven Brands Charitable Foundation also adopted a family in need this month in the Charlotte area, with the foundation donating clothes, toys, household items, as well as gift cards for food and gas. One of the main initiatives of the foundation is to change the lives of children and families in need within the local community.
