The American Cancer Society, a global organization leading the fight for a world without cancer, and Pampered Chef, an Illinois-based mealtime solutions company, are teaming up to raise money for the American Cancer Society (ACS) Hope Lodge ® Program, a free place to stay for cancer patients and their caregivers when their best hope for effective treatment may be far from home.
From May 1 -31, individuals can host Help Whip Cancer® fundraisers, and Pampered Chef will contribute up to 25% of total sales to the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge program. Pampered Chef will also contribute $1 to the American Cancer Society for every Scoop & Serve Spatula purchased during the month of May 2021. Help Whip Cancer fundraisers can be booked at pamperedchef.com.
"Our 2021 partnership with Pampered Chef provides a unique opportunity to raise money for our Hope Lodges as we prepare to welcome guests back home. With over two decades of support, Pampered Chef continues to make a meaningful impact in the fight against cancer by providing critical support to patients and their caretakers during treatment," said Wayne White, EVP of the American Cancer Society.
"Through our partnership with American Cancer Society, we have been able to raise funds to support Hope Lodges across the country," said Terry Haley, CMO for Pampered Chef. "The cornerstone of our business is shared mealtime. It’s an honor to help provide cancer patients and their caregivers a safe place to gather, enjoy meals as a community and allow them to focus on what matters most – their care."
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the American Cancer Society temporarily suspended the Hope Lodge program nationwide to protect immune-compromised cancer patient residents, volunteers, and staff. The Society is working towards reopening these facilities to guests after Q2 of 2021. Funds raised by Pampered Chef will support the reopening of Hope Lodge facilities and provide support for cancer patients traveling for treatment.
