“It’s very scary out there, because we are seeing more and more people who live paycheck-to-paycheck falling into the regional safety net,” said the Reverend Earl E. Nance, Jr., chair emeritus and treasurer of the regional not-for-profit advocacy, and energy assistance charity, Heatupstlouis.org covering Missouri and Illinois. “Many households have been economically decimated as both bread winners have either lost their jobs, or had their hours cut back,” said the Reverend Earl E. Nance, Jr.
The Hardee’s 22nd annual Rise and Shine for Heat benefit provides the general public and Hardee’s customers an opportunity to help their Illinois and Missouri neighbors in need, on all levels.
Hardee’s will donate again, its Sausage biscuits and Egg biscuits products ONLY Friday, February 11, during breakfast, 6-10 a.m. by selling them for the special price of $1.00, and 100% from the sales will benefit Heatupstlouis.org and its network of partners. Donations will stay in the communities where collected. Volunteers are needed from the civic, business, first-responders, the social service communities, and will serve as volunteer greeters, outside at the drive-thrus, parking lot and menu boards, this year.
Volunteers will receive brand new Hardee’s/Heat-Up collection aprons, free breakfast and they will only volunteer outside for one-hour. They can do more, time if they wish. To volunteer, you must go online to Heatupstlouis.org. It is all electronically to sign-up with friends and colleagues.
This year, Hardee’s also has a bulk pre-order campaign. You can order 10 or more Sausage Biscuits, or Egg Biscuits or a combine in January through February 9 also at a special price of $1.00 per biscuit. You must register the bulk pre-orders through Heatupstlouis.org, as well.
Any questions about pre-bulk orders or volunteering, please call at 314-369-7407. This is not the hotline requests for energy assistance, only inquiries regarding our volunteering and bulk pre-orders. If you need help with a utility bill go to Heatupstlouis.org and fill out an application, or call 314-241-0001, only if you are a senior or physically disabled person living in Missouri and Illinois.
