There is something magical about a root beer float. It brings out the kid in all of us!
As of this writing, DAV Wisconsin Chapters are being assigned nearby A&W Restaurants to represent DAV on National Root Beer Float Day on Tuesday, August 6, 2-8 PM. Customers will be given a free small root beer float upon request and donations will be encouraged to DAV.
Connecting Chapters with A&W Restaurants gives A&W team members an opportunity to express their gratitude to you and your fellow veterans, and for you to develop connections with them.
Chapters will not be responsible for handling any of the funds donated. All donations will be collected and managed by the A&W restaurant staff directly and sent back to DAV National Headquarters for processing and disbursement back to DAV State Departments.
Chapter involvement on event day could be as simple as stopping by to thank A&W restaurant owners, managers, and employees for DAV and our mission. Or, members may choose to stay for a while to interact with customers; pass out flag stickers and DAV flyers; spread the word about claims assistance for veterans; and perhaps even recruit new members.
Posting photos and sharing information about the event on your Chapter’s or the Department’s Facebook page is another way to expand awareness about DAV’s partnership with A&W.
Any hours spent at an A&W restaurant on event day will qualify for LVAP hours. Please send the total number of hours spent in store to SusanChamberlin@dav.org.
Last, but certainly not least, you should enjoy a free root beer float!
