The sale, which also is a fund-raiser, coincides with the observance of “National French Fry Day.” All proceeds from the “Crabfries For Heroes” effort will benefit the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police Survivors Fund, it said.
Also Thursday, the company’s Crabfries Express food truck will travel to select Philadelphia police districts and its police academy to deliver free lunch to Philadelphia police officers.
The non-profit fund raises money for families of Philadelphia police officers who have been tragically injured, or who died, in the line of duty. Chickie’s & Pete’s has so far donated more than $150,000 to the fund.
“We look forward to this every year,” Chickie’s & Pete’s Chairman and CEO Pete Ciarrocchi said. It’s one of the company’s favorite traditions, he added, and “an honor to be able to give back to such a great organization.”
“We have continued to go to Pete, and Chickie’s & Pete’s, for help when needed,” John McNesby, president of Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, said. “We have never been turned away; in fact we are always embraced. This man and his team live their lives by being a part of our community every day, and supporting our officers day in and day out.”
