For 15 years, Hardee’s has joined forces with the Kingsport Safety Contractors Partnership to provide a day of fun and safety education. 5th graders comes from 8 area schools to join the festivities. Students learn about fire, chemical and general safety, while a host of Kingsport businesses volunteer their time and resources for a full day. Hardee’s is happy to provide lunch for around 400 kids, teachers and volunteers. The Partnership presented Shannon Phipps and Jane Manis (GM at Kingsport #2) with a nice plaque to show their appreciation.
