Giving Back to the Community Golden Corral Style
Date:10/12/2007

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- When Golden Corral Restaurants agreed to become corporate partners with five community and health organizations to help Duval and Clay County residents get the flu shot, not the flu, it was business as usual, as far as Golden Corral was concerned. "Golden Corral has always believed in the importance of giving back," says Golden Corral Regional Manager Ian Worthington. "On the corporate level, we give to over 26 national organizations including Boy Scouts of America, the Breast Cancer Society, the American Red Cross, the United Negro College Fund, Meals on Wheels and the Salvation Army, to name a few." This spirit of giving is a driving force in each Golden Corral restaurant, according to Worthington. "Being part of our communities and giving back is the way we do business."

Starting in 2005, Golden Corral restaurants on Normandy Boulevard, Merrill Road, Southside Boulevard, Beach Boulevard and San Jose Boulevard hosted flu clinics reaching more than 2500 Jacksonville residents. This year, Orange Park's Golden Corral restaurant on Blanding Boulevard will be joining the ranks to provide area seniors, aged 65 and older, with flu shots. "The restaurants will open their doors at 9:00 am and store managers will welcome members of the community for flu shots in the comfortable surroundings of their friendly restaurants," says Worthington, "We make it easier than ever to be protected from the flu and we also provide free Golden Bucks and buy-one/get-one-free "Early Bird Special" coupons as a thank you to flu shot participants."

Flu shot clinics will be held the week of October 22 - 26, at the following Golden Corral Restaurants:

Monday, October 22: 7043 Normandy Boulevard, 32205 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Tuesday, October 23: 9070 Merrill Road, 32225 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Wednesday, October 24: 4250 Southside Boulevard, 32216 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Wednesday, October 24: 582 Blanding Blvd, Orange Park 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Thursday, October 25: 14035 Beach Boulevard, 32250 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Friday, October 26: 11470 San Jose Boulevard, 32223 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

In addition to a flu shot, seniors will receive a gift bag filled with health care information and a variety of goodies. Nurses from the Duval County Health Department and Maxim Health will administer flu shots and partners from FMQAI, Florida's Medicare Quality Improvement Organization, and the Department of Elder Affairs will be on hand to assist and to provide health care educational materials.
