At Yogurtland, our fans are constantly inspiring us to give back to the communities we share. Whether we’re helping combat human trafficking with our contributions to Exodus Cry, surprising the children at CHOC Children’s hospital with sweet treats, or raising funds to support local schools, we strive to find opportunities to give back in meaningful ways.
Without question, Yogurtland franchise owners share this passion for making a positive impact and we’re always inspired by them and their contributions.
We’d like to take this opportunity to recognize the outstanding efforts of two of our franchisees – Peter Kim and Minsik Choi .
This dynamic duo recently held a fundraiser at their Yogurtland store in Compton, CA in an effort to support the schools in their community. For every purchase made by fans that came to support the fundraiser, 50% of the purchase went to schools in the community. This resulted in over $2000 donated to Compton schools!
“We wanted to give back to the community that has accepted our store with open arms, and as most of our employees live in and attend schools in the Compton area, we thought a fundraiser for the schools here was a natural fit,” said Michelle Padilla, manager of the Compton store.
During the fundraiser, DJ Vicious Lee played music as friends and families enjoyed frozen yogurt and played games. A prize wheel was available for guests to spin to win Yogurtland swag and coupons. Additionally, backpacks filled with school supplies were raffled off to students who came to support the fundraiser.
“The kids who won the backpacks were so excited,” Padilla said. “One girl had already left and was crossing the street when she heard the DJ announce her name as a backpack winner. Needless to say, she ran right back to grab her new backpack. It definitely showed us how thankful children are for these types of events.”
Seeing the joy that our frozen yogurt brings to your faces makes a good day great for us, and through our continued support of your communities we hope to make a good day great for you, too.
“Giving back to the community goes a long way,” Padilla said, “and we look forward to hosting more events that benefit our youth in the future!”
