The foundation associated with San Diego-based Jack in the Box announced Friday a $375,000 donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters, which will allocate a large portion of the funds to provide mentors to children from military families.

Among the children to benefit from the funding will be those in families of deployed military, and who have had a parent killed, wounded or disabled, according to the foundation.

The money was raised at the 26th annual Jack in the Box Charity Golf Tournament, held last week in La Quinta. Nearly 400 Jack in the Box restaurant franchisees, employees and vendors attended the event.

The Jack in the Box Foundation has donated more than $650,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters in 2016, including a $167,000 donation representing proceeds from the sale of a limited-edition ornament during the holidays.
