Pampered Chef continued its 22-year partnership with the American Cancer Society in a donation to the nonprofit’s Hope Lodge Program, which offers a free place to stay for cancer patients and their caregivers who seek treatment far from home.
Pampered Chef will donate its Quick Cooker, a 16-in-1 pressure and slow cooker, to the American Cancer Society in August through a campaign that aims to support Hope Lodge patients and families.
“We believe in the power of mealtime to build happier and richer lives, but we also understand that finding a mealtime win can be difficult, especially for those facing illness and challenges,” said Terry Haley, Chief Marketing Officer at Pampered Chef. “In August, customers can turn a hosting experience with us into a mealtime win for others, supporting Hope Lodge patients and caregivers. Our Quick Cookers help simplify mealtime and champion planned leftovers, so patients can focus on their care and well-being.”
The American Cancer Society had to temporarily suspend the Hope Lodge program during the COVID-19 pandemic to protect the immunocompromised, but is working toward reopening facilities. Funds raised in 2021 by Pampered Chef as part of its Help Whip Cancer program will support that reopening process and provide support for cancer patients traveling for treatment.
“We are grateful for Pampered Chef’s continuous efforts to help us lead in the fight against cancer,” said Peter Steele, VP of Regional Distinguished Partners at the American Cancer Society. “As we prepare to welcome guests back into our Hope Lodges, this opportunity provides a unique way to ensure our kitchens are fully equipped and ready to assist in taking any burden of preparing meals off our guests.”
