Tuesday marked the sixth annual Autism Awareness Day. For the third year in a row, a restaurant chain in our area used it to kick off their fundraiser for Autism Speaks.
Panera started the Pieces of Hope for Autism Campaign two years ago. Puzzle piece shortbread cookies will be sold for five days and 100% of the proceeds go to Autism Speaks. This campaign is unique to the West Virginia regional stores and has raised $20,000 since it began. This year, some of the other regions have joined the campaign.
If you don't want to buy a cookie, you can still drop your spare change in containers at the register over the next two months to donate to Autism Speaks.
