“We are back bigger than ever this year with one of our favorite Chickie’s & Pete’s traditions, Crabfries for Heroes benefiting the FOP Survivors Fund,"  said Chickie’s & Pete’s Chairman and CEO Pete Ciarrocchi. "It’s an honor to be able to give back to such a great organization."

Every year for National French Fry Day, Chickie's and Pete's honors local heroes with Crabfries for Heroes. The annual tradition features one-dollar orders of Crabfries® at participating Chickie's and Pete's locations in Philadelphia and South Jersey. This year, every single penny raised from Crabfries® for Heroes will go to the Fraternal Order of Police Survivors Fund. The Fund is a non-profit organization located in Philadelphia, PA, that raises money for families of Philadelphia Police Officers who have been tragically injured or who have passed away in the line of duty. 

To date, Chickie’s & Pete’s has donated over $125,000 to the FOP Survivors Fund thanks to the monumental success of their event and the amazing support of the community. 

This year marks the first year since the pandemic Chickie’s & Pete’s will be officially returning with their $1 Crabfries® promotion. In celebration of its return, Chickie’s & Pete’s will be extending their typical one-day promotion to also include:
