ATLANTA, April 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cinnabon® brand will continue to spread sweet cheer to nurses everywhere during its annual National Nurses Week giveaway. From May 6-12, 2016, participating Cinnabon bakeries will offer a free Cinnabon Classic Roll or MiniBon® roll to nurses presenting their healthcare ID badge.
Cinnabon has a philanthropic mission of giving to those who give to others, nurses being just one of the many who dedicate their time to making a difference. Since 2000, Cinnabon has proudly supported The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Foundation, an organization that was created to say 'thank you' to nurses. The relationship began when a young patient requested Cinnabon cinnamon rolls be given to all of his nurses, as a gift of appreciation for the care and compassion shown to him during his illness. Today, Cinnabon continues to recognize the nursing community by participating in monthly DAISY Award ceremonies held at hospitals around the country. And, to spread the warmth even further, Cinnabon honors nurses with the annual Nurses Week giveaway.
"Sharing cinnamon rolls with nurses is just a small way of thanking them for the amazing things they do for patients on a daily basis," said Joe Guith, president of Cinnabon. "Over the last 16 years, we have donated over one million Cinnabon treats to nurses across the country as a way of showing our appreciation for their ongoing selflessness and care."
