Today, Great American Cookies announced that its e-commerce program is supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as it provides urgent support for blood cancer patients who are at a higher risk of getting sick from COVID-19.
$2 from every sale of GAC’s new Cookie Decorating Kits and Cookie Gift Boxes go to support LLS's mission and quest to cure blood cancers and ensure that patients have access to the lifesaving treatments they need, which is needed now more than ever during the COVID-19 crisis.
“At Great American Cookies, we believe in celebrations and sending love and comfort,” says Lisa Cheatham, vice president of growth marketing for Global Franchise Group (GFG), the franchisor of the Great American Cookies brand. “Though COVID-19 has altered the way we are coming together, we are proud to be baking treats to help people celebrate life’s moments – from birthdays, to graduations, to sending a cookie care package to brighten someone’s day. Knowing our cookies add a little light while supporting the incredible work of LLS warms our hearts.”
“Thanks to the generosity of partners like Great American Cookies, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is able to support blood cancer patients and their families when they need it most,” says Margo K. Lucero, LLS executive vice president of corporate partnerships and development. “We were founded 70 years ago by a family, for families, and will continue to fight for families until we achieve a world without blood cancer. We are so grateful to Great American Cookies – today more than ever – for being part of the LLS family.”
Great American Cookies has a longstanding relationship with LLS and along with the Global Franchise Group family of brands has raised more than $2.7 million for the organization through its annual “A Bite for the Fight” fundraising program.
The New Cookie Decorating Kits from Great American Cookies come with six chocolate chip cookies (three heart shaped and three flower shaped) with bags of assorted colored icing, decorative sugar, sprinkles and Mini M&M’s. All baking and packaging takes place at Great American Cookies’ innovation center facility in Atlanta. All items are baked the day they ship (to anywhere in the U.S.) and may be placed at Great American Cookies’ website.
