“We are thrilled to be a partner for Make a Difference Day for the first time this year,” said Paul Brown, CEO, Arby’s Restaurant Group. “At Arby’s, we have six core values that have guided how we do business for decades. One of these values is Make a Difference. Our commitment to this value makes joining this volunteer program a natural fit. The entire Arby’s system is excited to see our Make a Difference value come to life at a national level next month as we come together to give back to the communities we serve.”

This October 22, thousands of volunteers and communities across the country will come together with a common mission: to improve the lives of others through community-driven service projects.
