Hardee's & Carl's Jr. restaurants have an annual program called Stars for Heroes. Customers can buy a star in their restaurants. Half of the funds received are donated to Yellow Ribbon. The other half are distributed to organizations that are nominated by local restaurants. In 2012 the MN restaurants chose DTBL as their recipient with a $10,000 donation. Thank you very much to the Hardee's organization for helping fund equipment and grants for military kids.
