Anderson's joins 'Thank-A-Vet' program

Tonawanda News — Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs announced that Anderson’s Frozen Custard will serve up the Clerk’s “Thank-A-Vet” Discount Program at all seven of their locations throughout Erie County. 

Jacobs said since 2012 he has reached out to local businesses asking them to offer a discount or benefit to veterans who present the clerk’s discount card.  

“To date, we’ve grown the program to over 750 participating businesses,” Jacobs said. “With the addition of Anderson’s Frozen Custard, we now offer an additional money saving option for our veterans who are very excited about Anderson’s becoming a part of the program.”

The “Thank-A-Vet” Discount Card is offered free of charge and available to any honorably discharged veteran in Erie County who files their original military discharge papers (DD214) with the county Clerk’s Office. 

Anderson’s Frozen Custard, which has been locally owned and operated since 1946, will offer a 10 percent discount on their menu to veterans presenting the clerk’s “Thank-A-Vet” card, Jacobs said. 

Holly Anderson-Wildermuth said her family has a long tradition of military service, which led to the decision to participate in the program. 

Her husband served in the Army and Reserves for over 20 years and their daughter has been active duty in the Army for the past nine years, recently being recommended for promotion to major.

“We are proud to support the Clerk’s “Thank-A-Vet” Discount Program as a thank you to the thousands of veterans in our community,” she said.
