Covelli Enterprises, the largest franchisee of Panera Bread, has partnered with Potential Development School for Autism to launch the “Raising Dough for Autism” campaign during World Autism Awareness Month.
The campaign will run from today until Sunday, April 23rd.
Covelli Enterprises has been collaborating with Potential Development School for Autism for the past 13 years.
This year, they will be using Panera’s new toasted baguette sandwiches to raise funds, with three dollars from each sandwich benefiting the school.
Seven Panera Bread locations in the Mahoning Valley are participating in the fundraiser.
The money raised will go towards expanding the school, opening more classrooms, and purchasing sensory equipment to help students be successful.
Donations can also be made at the cash registers of all participating Panera Bread locations.
The campaign aims to support students with autism in achieving their life’s goals.
