Border Foods’ Winter Cheer & Volunteer Roundup 


To warm hearts and do our part to spread some cheer, Border Foods’ Taco Bell restaurant teams have been keeping busy through bitterly cold winter months by serving in our local communities. All of the organizations we partner with are near and dear to our hearts, and receive Taco Bell Foundation grants as a result of our restaurants’ fundraising at the local level.

Take a look at where we’ve been:


Boys & Girls Club of Rockford

Led by Area Coach Anne Kurich and Forest Plaza RGM Renee Crenshaw, our Rockford, IL team volunteered their time at the Boys & Girls Club of Rockford, doing holiday crafts with local children.


Boys & Girls Club of Greater Kalamazoo

Our Kalamazoo team members really showed up in a big way during the 2022 holiday season, sending more than 16 volunteers and sizzling tacos to all four of Boys & Girls Club of Kalamazoo’s clubhouse events! Director of Operations Vince Bosscher and Region Coach Dawn VanMaanen recruited Borders’ own to help with games for participating children; we even had a special “build your own taco” craft station!


St. Cloud Salvation Army

Members of our St. Cloud, MN team spent time walking Salvation Army clients through the St. Cloud location to pick out gifts for their kids. Special “shout out” to Area Coach Juli Froehlig for getting her team involved. This was a repeat event! Juli’s team had a blast participating last year and wanted to continue the tradition.

Boys & Girls Club of Twin Cities

Twin Cities Region Coaches Craig Curit and Ken Lund organized members of their teams to volunteer to wrap gifts for Boys & Girls Club of Twin Cities “Kids Can Give” event.


Border Foods’ corporate office sent interested volunteers to Youthprise in Minneapolis, MN to help wrap gifts for low-income families in preparation for Youthprise’s “Spread Joy” holiday event.


Boys and Girls Club of Sioux Empire

Region Coach Pam Hare led the charge in recruiting volunteers from our Sioux Falls, SD team to help Boys and Girls Club of Sioux Empire with a holiday craft event for school-aged children.
