People Dedicated to Quality (PDQ) is collecting books from now through Sunday at each of its restaurants in recognition of National Children's Book Day.
The Greenville PDQ, located at 3906 Pelham Road Greenville, SC 29615, will be collecting books for Boys & Girls Clubs of Greenville.
Guests that donate a new or gently used book will be offered a card for free 3-piece chicken tenders, a sandwich or a salad for use on their next visit.
Outback Steakhouse co-founder Bob Basham and MVP Holdings CEO Nick Reader are the principal owners of PDQ.
The original PDQ restaurant opened in South Tampa and the concept now has 39 locations throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas.
PDQ hosted a similar book drive last year. With the help of its guests and Boys & Girls Clubs supporters, more than 10,000 books were collected for local clubs.
This year, books will be collected at all PDQ locations. PDQ is looking forward to working with its local clubs to add more library resources for children to enjoy.
“We are honored to participate in an event that furthers the advancement of education and benefits local youth,” said Steve Erickson, president of PDQ. “As People Dedicated to Quality, we always remember that people are the heart and soul of our brand and this book drive exemplifies that.”
