The return of the Dog Days of Summer collection campaign
Centerville, Springfield, Huber Heights and Beavercreek T.G.I. Friday’s are once again collecting non-perishable pet food, toys, treats and accessories. Until September 8, 2011, individuals who donate will receive a free appetizer for T.G.I. Friday’s.
Here’s how it works: go to the Bistro Group website and download your printable coupon. Present your T.G.I. Friday’s server with the coupon and your donated item and get your free appetizer! The dogs at the Humane Society of Greater Dayton get the toy, food, treats or other accessories that you donate.
T.G.I. Friday’s gives back to the community
Says Amie Dancu, Director of Marketing for T.G.I. Friday’s franchisee, The Bistro Group:
“The Dog Days of Summer collection campaign was such a successful, heartfelt initiative last summer that there was no question that T.G.I. Friday’s would return to support the Humane Society of Greater Dayton in 2011.The Dayton community came out in full force to show its love for local animals in need, and we’re looking forward to working with everyone to make an even bigger difference this year.”
Brian Weltge, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Greater Dayton adds:
“We are genuinely honored and excited to have T.G.I. Friday’s Dog Days of Summer support for the second year. Animal welfare is an important, year-round issue about which the Humane Society of Greater Dayton is very passionate. We’re grateful for T.G.I. Friday’s continued partnership.”
So – go to the website, print out the coupon, and take it to T.G.I. Friday’s with a donated item and enjoy your free appetizer.
CoCo (pictured) is a medium size, neutered male Sheltie mix. He is a lively yet well-behaved fellow who is housebroken and knows basic commands. He likes to play and enjoys the dog park and kiddie wading pools, and would be a fun companion and fine addition to any family. Stop by the Humane Society of Greater Dayton and meet CoCo!
