The Fernandina Beach, Jacksonville and Yulee Barberitos locations will be donating 10 percent of sales from their percentage days to the DONNA Foundation.

The Breast Cancer Awareness Percentage Days will take place on:

“Barberitos is dedicated to making a difference, and many people throughout greater Jacksonville have had their lives impacted by breast cancer,” said participating Barberitos Owner Kate Wilder. “In addition to enjoying a fresh and tasty meal, our guests can feel good knowing that they are helping such a worthy cause, the DONNA Foundation.”

The DONNA Foundation was established in 2003 by a three-time breast cancer survivor and award-winning journalist Donna Deegan to meet the critical financial needs of the underserved living with breast cancer. The foundation’s mission is to provide financial assistance and support to individuals living with breast cancer and to fund groundbreaking breast cancer research.

“Breast Cancer Awareness Month will look very different this year, but we are thankful that Barberitos’ efforts will unite us in our national commitment to raising awareness and researching to combat breast cancer,” said Amanda Napolitano, Executive Director of The DONNA Foundation. “This year has brought new fears to the forefront, but it has also created opportunities to support our mission.”
