During the outbreak of COVID-19, Pampered Chef and the American Cancer Society disclosed a nationwide partnership in order to support free temporary housing for front-line health care workers.
According to a press release, “Due to the impacts of coronavirus, the American Cancer Society was forced to suspend operations of its Hope Lodge program, a free service that provides lodging for patients across the United States undergoing treatments, to ensure the safety of its immunocompromised guests. As a result, the organization has repurposed the Hope Lodges to provide housing to front-line health care workers as a place of respite between shifts and to help protect their loved ones from COVID-19 exposure.”
Pampered Chef is a provider of cooking solutions delivered by a community of 40,000 cooking consultants. The American Cancer Society consists of 1.5 million volunteers dedicated to saving lives, celebrating lives, and leading the fight for a world without cancer.
“This nationwide initiative allows us to safely house and support front-line health care workers who are making personal sacrifices to keep our nation healthy. We are thrilled to partner yet again with Pampered Chef on this critical initiative and look forward to seeing the tremendous impact we will have on flattening the curve and supporting our front-line health care workers,” said Maggie LaFleur, Corporate Relations at the American Cancer Society.
Now through May 2020, Pampered Chef will contribute $1 for every purchase of its popular Mix ‘N Chop. They will also give up to 30 percent of total sales from virtual fundraiser shows, to help counterbalance the operating costs of American Cancer Society’s 34 Hope Lodge locations across the nation.
“Pampered Chef has been a trusted advocate for supporting families and now more than ever, we are dedicated to lifting each other up so that no one faces these unprecedented challenges alone,” said Andrew Treanor, CEO of Pampered Chef. “We are thankful that our longtime partnership with the American Cancer Society will allow us to keep Hope Lodge locations fully operational to comfortably house those fighting to protect us from COVID-19.”
