Great American Cookies and Marble Slab Creamery have partnered with March of Dimes, a nonprofit fighting for the health of moms and babies. The three companies will honor neonatal intensive care unit patients, families and healthcare professionals, according to a press release.
Great American Cookies and Marble Slab Creamery will deliver cookie cakes and ice cream cakes to select NICU units. On NICU Awareness Day, Sept. 20, Great American Cookies and Marble Slab Creamery will donate $1 to March of Dimes for every purchase made in-store or online. Additionally, customers that order cookie or ice cream cakes online on Sept. 30 (and pick up no later than Oct. 7) receive $3 off their order with a code.
“With 1 in 10 babies born preterm each year, many of whom will spend time in the NICU, we appreciate the remarkable impact NICU staff have on families,” Jenn Johnston, chief marketing officer at FAT Brands, Inc., said in the release. “At Marble Slab Creamery and Great American Cookies, we love sharing milestone moments with families, whether it’s a birthday or first steps — every milestone is worth celebrating. We have the perfect cookie cakes and ice cream cakes to do just that! We are proud to raise funds to further the March of Dimes mission to improve the health of all moms and babies.”
“For more than 20 years, March of Dimes has been there for families with a baby in the NICU and as they transition home, offering the support and education they need, right when they need it,” Kelly Ernst, March of Dimes SVP, chief revenue and impact officer, said in the release. “This NICU Awareness Month, we are inspired by Great American Cookies and Marble Slab Creamery’s commitment to celebrate the dedicated staff that work so hard to take care of thousands of families each year with support from our hospital partners across the country as part of their exciting Milestones Matter initiative.”
Great American Cookies has more than 400 bakeries across the U.S. Marble Slab Creamery operates across the globe with locations in Bahrain, Canada, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S.
