Centerstone fundraising event to be held at Panera in Alton on #GivingTuesday
Centerstone will participate in a #GivingTuesday fundraising event at the Panera at 1837 Homer Adams Parkway in Alton, Ill., from 4 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, December 3.
To participate, just bring in a copy of this flyer or show an electronic version to the cashier when you place your order and Panera will donate a portion of the proceeds to Centerstone’s Foundation. Gift card purchases, catering, kiosk, and third-party delivery orders are excluded and will not count toward the event. If you plan to use Rapid Pick-Up or Delivery, enter “PRFUND” as your Promo Code.
Funds raised during this event will go to Centerstone’s Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Centerstone that directly supports the work of Centerstone. The Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of lives of individuals and families who come to Centerstone for care.
“Funds raised through this and other giving at Centerstone directly supports our clients’ needs,” said Jocelyn Popit, director of advancement at Centerstone’s Foundation. “We receive requests for simple, tangible items that represent support for our clients, or gifts that build skills towards long-term recovery. Some of the recent requests that we’ve been able to provide include weighted blankets, hygiene products, one-time assistance with electricity bills, day-camp tuition, and Tae Kwon Do lessons.”
The fundraising event at Panera will be held on Giving Tuesday, the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving, when people are encouraged to transform their communities through charitable giving.
“With your help on Giving Tuesday, and every day throughout the year, we are delivering care that changes people’s lives,” Popit said.
