ONE ADOPTION IS ALL IT TAKES
When you visit a Wendy's, you're helping us create families through foster care adoption.
Because of one adoption, a child was given the love and support to pursue his dream of starting an old-fashioned hamburger restaurant. His name was Dave Thomas, our founder. That's why Wendy's has helped thousands of children find safe and loving families, so they can pursue their dreams just like Dave. When you visit Wendy's, you are supporting our charity, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Dave's charity works hard every day to match kids waiting in foster care with parents waiting for kids. Adoptions happen through an amazing program called Wendy's Wonderful Kids. We believe every child deserves a loving, permanent family and to date, Wendy's Wonderful Kids has made that dream come true for more than 6,000 kids. Together, we can make this dream a reality for every child, so they will have what Dave had - a place to call home.
