“White Castle is showing its commitment to our community by investing in building a bigger, brand-new restaurant,” said Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan about the re-opening.  “It is another strong indicator that our community is a great place for business.”

White Castle’s “volunteers” also to be Highlighted

Manna Café MinistriesDuring Friday’s ribbon-cutting, ceremony participants will also recognize four White Castle Team members who were “loaned” to Manna Café Ministries while the restaurant was under construction.

The Team members volunteered for about 12 weeks in the non-profit ministry’s food distribution center and helped with other essential tasks that provide a lifeline to needy families and individuals in the area.

In addition to having the satisfaction of serving others, the Team members also benefited from volunteering by receiving their regular pay from White Castle while helping Manna.

Kenny York, the director of Manna, described the loaning of White Castle’s Team members as “exciting” and “huge.”  “It was like giving us four new staff members,” said Mr. York.

Shawna Jones, Regional Director for White Castle, said it is deeply satisfying to know that the work performed by the Team members was so greatly valued, and she hopes the restaurant can somehow continue to support the ministry in the future through its “Castle Shares” program, which involves giving back to the community through charitable partnerships.

“What Manna does is so very important to the local community,” said Ms. Jones. “We’ll be looking for ways to continue the partnership in the future. It’s one more way White Castle can help feed hunger, hope and dreams in our neighborhoods.”
