Manhattan Bagel in Wayne, New Jersey is looking to give back to one lucky college student by helping to pay for their education.

On Saturday, March 3, the bagel franchise will donate the proceeds from its entire day of business to a scholarship at William Paterson University, which will be available to any student in the Wayne, New Jersey area.

A committee from William Paterson will select the student who will receive the education funding. Manhattan Bagel came up with the idea to help fund a scholarship because it is located near the William Paterson campus.

“This is the first time we have been in a position to do something so exciting that will help a college student in need,” says Manhattan Bagel’s Akram Kwaik. “We know that Saturday is a day that people eat out and we are hoping that the entire community comes out to support this fundraiser to help us raise money for such a good cause.”
