“Panera Bread is honored to support the North Andover community, specifically the youth that attend the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence,” said Mitch Roberts franchise co-owner of Panera Bread in North Andover. “We are proud to give back to this wonderful organization through the Operation Dough-Nation program.”
The North Andover bakery-cafe originally collected $3,375 from customers through in-store Operation Dough-Nation canisters. Panera Bread then matched its customer donations dollar for dollar, bringing the total donation to $6,750.
“We greatly appreciate the support we receive from the Panera Bread in North Andover and its customers,” said Markus Fischer, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence. “This dough-nation will help our Club to continue our mission of helping the youth in our community achieve academic success, commit to healthy lifestyles, and get involved in their community.”
