Meet Parker

At Eat’n Park, one of our primary areas of philanthropic focus is enhancing the lives of military veterans and their families. As part of this commitment, we are excited to announce that we’re sponsoring a soon-to-be service dog who will be matched with a veteran after its training!

To help celebrate the newest member of our Eat'n Park family, we asked our team members to help us name her! Over 200 suggestions were submitted, but we just couldn’t decide. So, we asked our Facebook family, and after 3,500 votes, our new furry friend was named Parker!


Parker is a 4-month old rescue dog and is being trained through Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs. Parker’s training will take 24 months, as she learns to mitigate the effects of conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, seizure disorders and mobility issues. 

We’re truly honored to be sponsoring Parker and are looking forward to sharing her journey with all of you. Be sure to check back periodically to see what Parker has been up to!

FAQ About Our Caring For Kids Campaign

What is Caring for Kids? 

Caring for Kids is an annual, five-week long fundraising campaign for children’s hospitals across our restaurant footprint. What started in 1979 from the passion of one team member at one restaurant has now grown into a company-wide effort, which raised $445,400 last year.

Caring for Kids, even in its 39th year, continues to be a campaign driven by the heart of our team members. This is why, restaurant to restaurant, each campaign looks a little different from the rest. We will keep you updated on the campaign events happening near you, so be sure to check back often. Your support will go a long way to help the kids in children’s hospitals in your region.

Caring for Kids Buzz Words

Here are the most popular ways our restaurants fundraise for the campaign.

Rodeo Round-Up: If you happen to be dining at an Eat’n Park restaurant during this event, you will be encouraged to “round-up” your bill to the nearest dollar, donating the extra change to the campaign.

Santa Smileys: This is a quick and easy way to make a $1 pledge to Caring for Kids. Purchase a paper Santa Smiley for $1, write your name on it, and it will be hung in the restaurant throughout the campaign.

One Day, One Dollar: On Saturday, December 2, we have a goal to raise $10,000 for our Caring for Kids Campaign in one day! Help us stopping by to enjoy fun in-restaurant activities and adding a $1 donation to your check!

Ford Car Raffle: Our generous friends at Neighborhood Ford Store have donated a 2018 Ford Escape to our campaign! You can buy a chance (or ten) to win for only $2 each. All proceeds benefit Caring for Kids.


Which hospitals benefit from this campaign?

Currently, the funds raised company-wide benefit the following pediatric hospitals and medical centers:
  • Akron Children’s Hospital
  • Akron Children’s Hospital of the Mahoning Valley
  • Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

  • John Hopkins Children’s Center

Our 2017 Caring For Kids Campaign is Here!

Since 1979, Eat'n Park guests and team members have united to do some serious fundraising for five weeks every November and December. That's right - it's time for Caring for Kids! Last year, we surpassed $10 million in total contributions since the inception of the campaign, and we’re looking to keep that momentum going!

Read on to learn how you can help support our 39th Annual Caring for Kids campaign!

$2 Raffle Tickets – 2018 Ford Escape

Our generous partner, Neighborhood Ford Store, has kindly donated a 2018 Ford Escape to the campaign - so one lucky guest is going to be taking home a pretty sweet Christmas present!

Raffle tickets are available for just $2 each at all Eat'n Park locations. Just ask your server for one (or 10!) for your chance to win. 100% of the proceeds from the raffle go directly to the campaign.

Restaurant Activities

Every year, our team members pour their hearts into this campaign. Many of them donate their time to organizing special events at our special events inside and outside of our restaurants.

This season, you can look forward to Pictures with Princesses, basket raffles, local dances, and many more unique events! We'll be updating the schedule of events every week, so check back often to see what's happening at your local Eat'n Park!

NEW! One Day, One Dollar

New this year is our One Day, One Dollar initiative, where on Saturday, December 2, we hope to raise $10,000 for our Caring for Kids Campaign! We hope you’ll stop by to enjoy fun in-restaurant activities and help us by adding a $1 donation to your check! Plus, our juice supplier, Nestle Professional Vitality, will be matching the first $5,000 of donations!
