Panera Bread kicked-off its “Pieces of Hope for Autism” cookie campaign today in honor of National Autism Awareness Month.
The cookies sold are shaped like puzzle pieces, a symbol of the disorder, and all proceeds will benefit the Autism Diagnostic Center at Dayton Children’s Hospital.
A local mother, Wendy Cash, says the campaign has helped with intense therapy for her son.
“You have to jump through hoops a lot of times to obtain services through insurance companies, and Dr. Dewitt has been instrumental in us getting his therapy,” she said.
All 13 Dayton-area Panera locations are selling the cookies.
