Waffles For PVA.
Combining an auto racing icon with delicious waffles is adding up to support for the nation's most catastrophically injured veterans.
Thanks to the help of longtime Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) partner "The King" Richard Petty, Waffle House is emailing PVA donors a coupon good for a free waffle through Nov. 11.
Anyone interested in supporting PVA should visit pva.org/wafflehouse and make a donation to help ensure veterans with disabilities have quality health care, life-sustaining jobs and the benefits they've earned.
The campaign kicked off at a special event at the Waffle House in Sandstone, Va., near Richmond on Sept. 8 and included an appearance by Petty.
"Our relationship with Paralyzed Veterans of America is the heart of our dedication to this country's best and bravest," Petty said during the event. "We continue to strive to introduce its mission to other partners who want to show the same grateful return to the men and women who have sacrificed for our freedom."
Waffle House President and CEO Walt Ehmer says it's an honor for his restaurant to partner with PVA.
"We salute all those who have sacrificed so much for our country, and we are proud to be giving back to those who paid such a heavy price to preserve our freedom," Ehmer says.
