ARBY'S AND HANK AARON TEAM UP FOR BIG BROTHERS/BIG SISTERS OF AMERICA

 MIAMI, Nov. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- When Hank Aaron stepped up to bat for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America, he hit another home run. Aaron teamed up with Arby's restaurants nationwide to recruit 715 adult volunteers for the organization, the number matching Aaron's famous record-breaking home run.
 As part of the Arby's/Hank Aaron 715 Challenge, Aaron traveled to 10 cities across America to raise awareness of the social service organization and its need for more volunteers.
 This year, the challenge was surpassed and 753 adults were recruited to serve as friend and mentor on a One-To-One(R) basis to youngsters in need of a role model. In addition to this successful program, Arby's has raised more than $8 million for the organization since 1986.
 To find out more about Big Brothers/Big Sisters and how to volunteer, contact the local Big Brothers/Big Sisters agency.
