Day-End Dough-Nation Program Delivering the Goods Every Day of the Year!

July 14, 2010

As part of its new Operation Dough-Nation® program, Paradise Bakery & Café continues a longstanding commitment to the community by supporting Phoenix Rescue Mission through  Day-End Dough-Nation, a program that donates high-quality, unsold baked goods to local organizations in need, from all 32 of its Phoenix-area cafés year-round

The Day-End Dough-Nation program is expected to help provide baked goods to help supplement the 5,600 meals served each week at Phoenix Rescue Mission. Overall, the program’s baked goods donations are valued at approximately $1.5 million each year. Recognized for its fresh products, Paradise Bakery’s local cafés will donate hundreds of pounds of wholesome breads, muffins, croissants, and award-winning cookies.

“We are honored to serve those in need the best way we know how – through our baked goods,” said Louie Kizis, Paradise Bakery & Café director of marketing. “We have been donating to local organizations since 1988 and are excited about this new relationship with Phoenix Rescue Mission. Through the Day-End Dough-Nation program our hearts are fulfilled with each day’s delivery of much-needed baked goods.”  

 “We are grateful to Paradise Bakery’s support and look forward to a long and heartwarming relationship,” said Jack Yearwood, Phoenix Rescue Mission COO. “Over the years, high quality baked goods have been among the most challenging to provide and what we need to supplement the 5,600 meals we serve each week. Thanks to Paradise Bakery’s delivery system, that problem has been solved.”
