ATLANTA, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cinnabon® brand spreads sweet cheer to nurses everywhere during National Nurses Week. From May 6-12, 2015, participating Cinnabon bakeries will offer nurses a free Cinnabon Classic Roll or MiniBon® roll when they present their healthcare ID badge.
The Cinnabon philanthropic mission is to give to those who give to others and nurses are at the top of that list. For 15 years, Cinnabon has been a lead sponsor of The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Foundation, a relationship that began when one patient requested Cinnabon cinnamon rolls for all of his nurses. It was his special way of thanking them for their care and support over the last few days of his life. Today, Cinnabon continues to honor 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.
"This is one small way in which Cinnabon can reciprocate for the many moments of comfort and kindness that nurses provide to patients all day long." said Joe Guith, President of Cinnabon. "Over the years, Cinnabon has given away over one million cinnamon rolls to nurses across the country as our way of showing appreciation for their tremendous service."
