The Saxton Group, McAlister’s Deli’s largest franchisee, is looking to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project with its latest Cookies for a Cause campaign.
During the month of November, McAlister’s Deli will sell camouflage and gold star-sprinkled cookies, with 50 cents from each sale benefitting veterans and their families.
“While we’re known for our McAlister’s Famous Sweet Tea, our cookies are just as sweet, and this cause makes them even sweeter,” says The Saxton Group, LLC co-CEO Adam Saxton.
“We have locations next to some of the country’s biggest military bases and have always supported our nation’s bravest. Additionally, we’re proud to have a number of veterans and reservists working in our restaurants. This campaign is our way of honoring the heroes who form an important part of our customer and employee base,” Saxton says.
“Wounded Warrior Project has served over 100,000 warriors, caregivers, and family members because of the generosity of our supporters,” says Wounded Warrior Project CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington. “We’re extremely grateful that McAlister’s is stepping forward to join our mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Their Cookies for a Cause campaign will give us the fuel needed to continue connecting wounded veterans with services that empower them to live their lives on their terms, at no cost.”
