Proceeds from Frosty Key Tags Support Scholarship Ray and Kim Blackburn, owners of 15 area Wendy’s restaurants, continue their mission to assist local children in furthering their education. In 2009, the Blackburn’s began the sale of Frosty key tags. All proceeds from those key tags went to fund the Wendy’s Adoption Scholarship Endowment Fund. After the initial $3 purchase of the key tag, customers can receive a free junior Frosty with each purchase from participating Wendy’s locations. The scholarship is open to WVU Parkersburg students in financial need. Preference goes to those who were adopted or went through the foster care program. For more information on the Wendy’s Adoption Scholarship, or to purchase Wendy’s Frosty key tags, contact the WVU at Parkersburg Foundation at 304.424.8340. Key tags can also be purchased at participating Wendy’s locations.
