Congratulations and many thanks to our Stores, Distribution Center and Home Office who had the opportunity to fundraise for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, an organization committed to providing funding for research to develop new improved treatments for pediatric cancer - the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S. Sadly, every 3 minutes, a U.S. parent learns that their child has cancer. Here’s just one story, about Elijah, that unfortunately, represents so many situations around the country.
This September, the designated month for National Childhood Cancer Awareness, our employees around the country organized yummy and delicious bake sales and cookie swaps to support this great organization! As an added bonus to what was raised through our cookie events, our wonderful vendor, OXO, matched $1 for $1 raised by our bake sales. With their help, we were able to donate almost $38,000 to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.
Thank you to our employees, who baked and purchased cookies and to OXO, for baking and eating to make a difference in children’s’ lives across the nation!
