Sentinel staff report–
Want to support a local organization helping the homeless in Citrus Heights? It’s as easy as buying a frozen yogurt from Menchie’s this Wednesday, according to a spokeswoman for the Citrus Heights Homeless Assistance Resource Team (HART).
The fundraiser will be held at Menchie’s on Wednesday, April 3, from noon to 5 p.m. The frozen yogurt shop recently opened in February at 5450 Sunrise Blvd., in the same shopping plaza as Nation’s Giant Hamburgers and Dos Coyotes Border Cafe.
Kathilynn Carpenter, who serves as a HART spokeswoman and executive director of the Sunrise MarketPlace, said anyone making a purchase during the specified time period — and bringing in a copy of the fundraising event flier — will have 20 percent of their purchase donated to HART.
The flier is posted on Menchie’s Facebook page, and can also be viewed by clicking here.
A separate clothing drive fundraiser benefiting HART is also going on through April 27. For more information, see story: Clothing drive underway to help Citrus Heights homeless
