Blue Bell, PA - US Restaurants, Inc., a Blue Bell based company and franchisee of 34 area Burger King Restaurants in Bucks, Montgomery, Chester counties and South Jersey, recently contributed $100,000 to Make-A-Wish® to fulfill the wishes of several local children.

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true has positive impacts on the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illness, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Headquartered in Phoenix, Make-A-Wish is one of the world's leading children's charities, serving children in every community in the United States and its territories. It is with our generous donors and more than 25,000 volunteers, that Make-A-Wish is able to grant a wish somewhere in the country every 38 minutes. It has granted more than 240,000 wishes since its inception in 1980. Make-A-Wish® Philadelphia & Susquehanna Valley serves Bucks, Chester, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Lancaster, Lebanon, Montgomery, Perry and Philadelphia counties and recently celebrated the granting of its 5000th wish.
