Auntie Anne’s Helping in the Fight Against Childhood Cancer
In 2011, Auntie Anne’s became a national partner in support of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to raise money to fund the research, prevention, and treatment for pediatric cancer. Founded by Alexandra “Alex” Scott, ALSF raises funds and awareness to combat the disease that ultimately took her life.
Since partnering with ALSF we have raised more than $500,000 largely through in-store fundraising campaigns, coin canister donations, local pretzel rolling contests, and our Auntie Anne's C.A.R.E.S. Golf Tournament. We were delighted and honored to be one of the top 100 donors to ALSF in 2011 and 2012, but the mission continues.
Grooming Today’s Youth into Tomorrow’s Leaders
As a Diamond Corporate Partner of The First Tee Auntie Anne’s helps in the healthy and positive development of youth to inspire success in life and education. Through the values and teachings offered on the golf course, The First Tee has served over 7 million youth since 1997. Auntie Anne’s hopes to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs by aiding in the teaching of career development and community leadership.
No One Should Go Hungry
Auntie Anne’s is committed to fighting hunger by supporting our local communities through our national partnership with Food Donation Connection. This food donation program enables stores to donate surplus pretzel products through a hunger relief organization, such as a rescue mission or after-school program. Auntie Anne’s is pleased to work with Food Donation Connection to feed those in need and reduce food waste.
A Legacy of Charitable Giving
Building on our founder's vision to give back, Auntie Anne’s is committed to serving others. Both Support Center employees and franchise partners and crewmembers are actively involved in making a difference in our local communities through an investment of volunteer time and financial resources.
