Portland, Oregon-based Voodoo Doughnut is no stranger to charitable efforts. The growing doughnut chain has raised money with doughnut sales in the past for organizations such as Harper’s Playground and the National Brain Tumor Society.
The latest fundraiser from Voodoo Doughnut will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of a blueberry pie-flavored doughnut will go directly to the organization dedicated to creating and supporting one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
The Pie, Pie My Darling features a blueberry pie filling inside a cinnamon sugar-dusted doughnut. The limited-time offering pairs well with the seasonal holidays and will be available through Tuesday, December 31.
As part of its 2019 quarterly giving campaign, Voodoo Doughnut has raised more than $22,000 on behalf of its national, non-profit partner organizations.
“We are thankful for the support of Voodoo Doughnut this holiday season. When customers purchase the new Pie, Pie My Darling doughnut, they are helping Big Brothers Big Sisters recruit more volunteers and build impactful, long-lasting mentoring relationships that empower youth to reach their potential,” says Cynthia Thompson, Chief Development Officer of Big Brothers Big Sisters Columbia Northwest (based in Portland).
