Whataburger will be donating a portion of their proceeds Wednesday to Goliad Elementary School.
Twenty percent of all sales made between and 5 to 8 p.m. — whether it be dine-in, drive-thru, curbside or delivery — will be donated to the school as part of the company’s program “Whataburger Feeding Student Success.”
According to Laurie Ramirez, field marketing coordinator for the restaurant, “Whataburger is focused on supporting students at all levels of their education to help them achieve their dreams and goals while removing barriers to success.”
“Whataburger regularly works to support local schools in our communities.” This is the store’s first benefit for the elementary school, but they have held similar events for the High School athletic department in the past.
Shelby Taylor, elementary school principal, said that the money raised will go into the general activity fund.
“We use these funds for things like our brag tags, incentive parties, vinyl window decals and prizes,” she said. “I also want to look into buying some sort of cover/shade for our new playground.”
