Arby’s Foundation Donates $15,000 to support Mountain Child Advocacy Center! As part of the annual in-restaurant fundraising program, the Make a Difference campaign raised nearly $6.2 million to support national organizations dedicated to affording kids the future they deserve. Over half of the funds raised ($3.4 million) are reinvested locally in communities across America. In Asheville, Mountain Child Advocacy Center (Mtn CAC) received $15,000 of the Make of Difference grant donations. These funds will help provide education, prevention, advocacy, and intervention services for abused children in Buncombe County. THANK YOU ARBY'S FOUNDATION!!
