Making a difference $1 at a time

Dream Big.
Work Hard.
Get It Done.
Play Fair.
Have Fun.
Make A Difference.

These are the values listed on the Arby’s FMS Group, Inc., website ( While each and every one of them has merit in its own right, it’s the Make A Difference value that means so much to Cunningham Children’s Home. That's because with giving hearts, our friends at Arby’s FMS Group, Inc., have truly made a difference in the lives of our youth.

Arby's FMS Group Inc, a proud presenting sponsor of the Festival of Quilts, will run its Give a $1...Give HOPE promotion March 1 through this year's Festival, April 5-6, and all proceeds will benefit Cunningham kids. Over the last three years, thanks to the efforts of the Arby’s staff and the generosity of their customers, more than $23,000 in donations has been collected through this campaign.

So how does it work? It’s simple. When you donate $1 at Arby's in Champaign, Urbana or Mahomet, you will receive a coupon for a FREE slider to be used on your next visit. And you can do this just as often as you would like.
Arby’s also displays promotional materials about Cunningham and the Festival of Quilts at its restaurants during this time. And in each of the last three years, we have seen record numbers of attendees at the Festival.

So while you’re enjoying a delicious slow roasted roast beef, turkey, or premium Angus beef sandwich, a slider, curly fries, a shake, or any of Arby’s delicious menu items, remember, you too can help make a difference. Even $1 at a time.
