SYCAMORE – Culvers, 1200 DeKalb Ave. in Sycamore, will donate 10 percent of sales between 5 and 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 23, to The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis Eliminating Maternal and Neonatal Tetanus.
The goal of this global campaign is to save millions of mothers and newborns from maternal and neonatal tetanus, a swift, painful and highly-preventable disease typically contracted through unhygienic birth practices. The project aims to immunize women of childbearing age, protecting them and their future babies.
"It is such a tragedy to see these babies die an excruciating death within just a few days of their birth from a disease that can be prevented by a series of three injections at a cost of $1.80," said Steph Forsberg, division chairperson of the II District for the Eliminate Project.
The next day, on Wednesday, July 24, the restaurant will donate 10 percent of sales from 5 to 8 p.m. to the Children's Learning Center's Fuel the Bus Fund.
The Fuel the Bus Fund is raising money to buy a new bus for the private, nonprofit child care center. Children's Learning Center uses its bus to transport children between the center and home and to take children receiving before or after-school care to and from public schools.
