Throughout the fundraiser timeframe, Farmer Boys guests will be invited to make a donation by "purchasing" a paper Lion Heart icon for $1.00 or more.

"Giving back to the neighborhoods and communities we serve is a hallmark of the Farmer Boys brand that we have proudly upheld over the past 30 years," said Ken Clark, President and Chief Operating Officer of Farmer Boys. "We have set a goal of raising $30,000 for the Loma Linda University Children's Hospital over the next four weeks -- dollars that this renowned facility can use to further the critical care it provides local children in need."

Since 2000, Farmer Boys, along with its guests, has raised over $260,000 for the Loma Linda University Children's Hospital. The company also sponsored the hospital's 26th Annual Children's Day in May, where over 1,100 children participated in free demonstrations to learn about fire and water safety, as well as health awareness.
