-Moe’s Southwest Grill Hosts a $1.99 Burrito Day to Benefit Local YMCA’s-
Charlotte, NC (March 18, 2011) – Moe’s Southwest Grill 10 Charlotte-area locations are teaming up with local YMCA’s to offer $1.99 Joey Junior burritos all day on Wednesday, March 23. One dollar from each burrito sold will be donated back to Charlotte-area YMCA’s for their community outreach programs.
Last year, Moe’s Southwest Grill raised more than $12,500 for local area schools. The charity event with the YMCA is another way for Moe’s to get more involved with the community and to give back.
“Moe’s is very excited about the YMCA $1.99 Burrito Day,” said Bryan Connelly, Moe’s Southwest Grill Charlotte Cooperative president. “YMCA’s are an important fixture in the lives of many Charlotte-area residents and we are honored to give back to an organization that directly affects the community we live in.
“We are thrilled that Moe’s chose the YMCA as a beneficiary for their $1.99 Burrito Day,” said Brooke Beddow, YMCA senior community relations director. “Moe’s has been a long time supporter of the YMCA’s mission. This effort gives us a great opportunity to raise awareness about the Y’s charitable work around healthy living, youth development and social responsibility.”
Anything but kid-sized, the Joey Junior burrito packs big flavor wrapped up into a soft flour tortilla. Guests can choose from ground beef, chicken or tofu and top it with their choice of beans, rice, shredded cheese, grilled vegetables, sour cream and pico de gallo.
Moe’s emphasizes the highest-quality ingredients including all-natural cage and hormone-free skinless white breast meat chicken, all-natural rBGH-free sour cream, hand-made ripe tomato pico de gallo, 100% Hass avocado guacamole, and 100% whole grain, freshly-fried tortilla chips.
