Throughout the year, communities across the country may face a number of natural disasters — hurricanes, tornados, wildfires and earthquakes — all of which can bring life-threatening conditions and cause devastation.

We all need to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and help those who are experiencing significant medical or economic impacts from the virus.

This is a story of how the donation of a few pennies led to millions of dollars in college scholarships, education grants, food for hungry children, gas cards and even natural disaster relief.
It all has to do with scale. A few pennies alone won’t buy much, but when a 20-cent donation is multiplied by thousands of restaurants across the United States, the give-back potential proves enormous — especially when the act, known as “checkout charity,” is executed by the world’s largest restaurant company.
