NPC Donates $779,923.46 to DTFA in 2017
2017 was an incredibly exciting year for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption as the organization celebrated their 25th anniversary on July 31. Since 1992, the Foundation has been committed to the vision of Wendy’s founder, Dave Thomas: to ensure every child has a permanent and loving family. The mission has never wavered, and each day, as a Wendy’s family, we work to dramatically increase the number of adoptions from foster care. We all believe that family is the birthright of every child and that every child is adoptable!
That’s why NPC, along with our customers, was proud to give nearly $779,923.46 to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption in 2017!

We are so proud of the work we did in 2017, however, our work is far from done. Each year, more than 20,000 youth age out of foster care in the United States without the love and support of the family that they deserve. There is so much work to be done, but these children deserve our best efforts, and that is exactly what they will get!
