Record-breaking 2018 Dandy Canes campaign raises almost $85,000

Sayre, PA (January 22, 2019) – Dandy is happy to announce the 2018 Dandy Canes community fundraising campaign raised a record-breaking $84,715 across the chain’s 65 locations. The 14th annual Dandy Canes campaign, which raises funds for more than 100 local organizations during the holiday season, bested last year’s total by more than $24,000. 
From November 23rd through December 26th, 2018, Dandy customers were invited to make donations of $1.00 or more to local charities and community organizations handpicked by store employees. Participants are given a paper Dandy Cane to sign at the store to acknowledge their donation. The stores then hang the Dandy Canes across the entire building to highlight the community’s support.
100% of the funds raised by the customers of each store stay within the community. Each store manager and their associates select organizations that support the community and their customers, then work to spread the word and collect donations. Local food pantries, animal rescues, youth development centers, veterans organizations and emergency services groups are among the more than 100 organizations chosen.
Dandy President Randy Williams thanks everyone involved for the success of this year’s Dandy Canes campaign. “It’s been another record year for community giving during our 2018 Dandy Canes campaign. The $84,715 raised will have an incredible impact on those in our communities who need it most. I would personally like to thank our Dandy associates, who put forth tremendous effort for these wonderful organizations, and all of our valued customers for being so generous during the holiday season.”
