Members of VFW Post 4156 headed over to BURGER KING® on Tuesday to show their support and appreciation for BURGER KING® franchisees as part of the VFW’s third annual #ThankBK Appreciation event.

BURGER KING® franchisees have donated more than $6 million in support of military families

VFW Members to Celebrate #ThankBK Appreciation Week since 2007, BURGER KING® franchisees and their customers have contributed more than $6 million to the VFW Unmet Needs program, providing vital financial assistance to military families who have fallen on hard times as a result of their service. Since the program’s inception in 2004, Unmet Needs has provided more than $11 million in financial grants to nearly 10,000 service members, veterans and their families.

The VFW is also encouraging any VFW and VFW Auxiliary members to post about their visit to social media using #ThankBK. As an added incentive, members who participate will be entered into a drawing to win a $2,000 Community Support Grant from the VFW Foundation. See the VFW’s #ThankBK Appreciation Week Facebook event page for the drawing’s full details and rules.

Get on over to any BURGER KING® franchise and show your support by eating and also by tagging photos on social media with the hashtag #ThankBK.
