Albany, NY – Panera Bread is pleased to announce that the American Cancer Society is the recipient of funds raised through the Operation Dough-Nation® at area bakery-cafes in 2008. A check was presented to the organization for $26,141 on Tuesday, March 10, at the newest Panera Bread in the Capital District located on Wolf Road.
Through the Operation Dough-Nation® program, Panera Bread accepts cash donations from customers throughout the year at collection boxes in all bakery-cafes. The customer donations then receive a percentage match from Panera Bread. This is the third year that the American Cancer Society has partnered with Panera for the Operation Dough-Nation® program.
In addition to the funds that Panera Bread will continue to raise for the American Cancer Society through the Operation Dough-Nation program in 2009, all area bakery-cafes are currently selling co-branded ACS/Panera stainless steel coffee mugs for $7.99 with a $2 contribution per mug sale back to the American Cancer Society to benefit their Coaches Vs. Cancer campaign. Additionally, free coffee refills on the mugs will be provided for 30 days from purchase. This campaign will run through April (or until supplies run out). Pick up yours today!
