Cookies for Kids fundraiser at Panera Bread cafes

Published February 06. 2013 4:00AM

The 14 Panera Bread/HBG bakery-cafes in Connecticut are conducting a Cookies for Kids! campaign until Valentine's Day, where 10 percent of the proceeds from every Valentine cookie sold will go to Channel 3 Kids Camp in Andover. The decorated shortbread cookies feature three different versions of conversation hearts that say "Love You," "XOXO" and "Be Mine." Panera cafes in Groton, Lisbon and Waterford and at Foxwoods Resort Casino are participating. They are owned and operated by the Howley Bread Group of Cumberland, R.I.

Since 1910, Channel 3 Kids Camp has offered children ages 6-16 from every county in Connecticut and throughout New England an accessible, inclusive and affordable overnight and day camping experience among the vast 350 acres along the Skungamaug River.
