Bartell’s, Strideline and Dick’s Drive-In “sock it” to homelessness
SEATTLE – Dick’s Drive In, Strideline and Bartell’s come together to support the No Child Sleeps Outside campaign by Mary’s Place.
Between the three companies, an idea was born: Strideline would create a limited-edition sock featuring local icon, Dick’s Drive-In. The idea of a quality, custom pair of socks from a local company, emblazoned with a local icon’s design being sold at Seattle’s own drug store, Bartell’s, would be a slam-dunk fundraiser for Mary’s Place. For every pair of socks sold, $1.00 is donated to the No Child Sleeps Outside program and TWO pairs of Strideline socks are donated to Mary’s Place. The socks are available at Bartell’s or online at www.ddir.com.
Dick Spady, co-founder of Dick’s Drive-In, believed that if one invested in their community and helped their community thrive, that their business would thrive. That notion is exemplified in this project. Donations raised will enable Mary’s Place to bring more than 1,000 moms, dads and kids inside from cars and tents this winter and get closer to the goal that No Child Sleeps Outside.
An exciting in-store event will be held at the University Village Bartell Drugs this Saturday, December 14th from 3p-4p with a showcase of the different styles of Strideline’s Dick’s Drive-In socks and the first 100 to visit the store will receive free Dick’s Burgers.
RoundUp for Charity and Change for Charity donations at all Dick’s Drive-In Restaurants in December support No Child Sleeps Outside.
