Tis’ the Season for Giving – OneforOne

BGR The Burger Joint and DC Central Kitchen have joined forces this holiday season to launch ONEforONE. A promotion that will help to feed the hungry and homeless in the DC area, ONEforONE will match each burger sold at all three BGR The Burger Joint locations (Bethesda, MD; Old Town Alexandria, VA; Dupont Circle in Washington, DC) with a burger donated to the food distribution networks of DC Central Kitchen. ONEforONE kicked off on December 1, 2009, and will close on New Year’s Eve with a countdown to midnight and simultaneous tallying of the total number of burgers donated.  
Mark Bucher, BGR Founder and President, sees this partnership as a new kind of inspired giving. “There are a lot of ways that business and organizations can work together for the betterment of our community,” said Bucher. “We want to involve the whole community with this one – our customers, our employees, and even our neighboring businesses.” At an economically challenging time, when corporate philanthropy has seen a downturn, and the needs of our most vulnerable populations are greater than ever, ONEforONE represents a new way of giving – by providing sustenance and support to the people who need it most.

Please make sure to visit a BGR before NYE! Thank you for your support!
