On September 9 Yogurtland will celebrate its 10th anniversary by kicking off a campaign to raise funds for local children’s hospitals across the country, including Children’s Hospital Orange County (CHOC). These hospitals, part of the Children’s Miracle Network, play an important role in the community by providing high quality care for sick kids. Yogurtland salutes these hospitals and caregivers and will be hosting yogurt parties for patients, their families and hospital staff.
From Sept. 9 – Oct. 19, Yogurtland will be collecting donations at stores throughout the country. Every dollar raised will go directly to local children’s hospitals. During this time period, Yogurtland will also be highlighting three of its most popular flavors – Birthday Cupcake Batter, Pineapple Sorbet and Almond Midnight Mocha.
These contributions will go to help kids like 11-year-old Jordin, a frequent visitor at her children’s hospital where the doctors and nurses help her manage her sickle cell disease, including acute chest syndrome and chronic pain. Jordin loves to ride and care for horses, play soccer and is an avid Disney fan. Despite her young age, she understands the seriousness of her disease and is living life to the fullest. Her goal is to become a doctor so that she can help other kids the way the doctors have helped her.
In 2006, Phillip and Michelle Chang opened the first Yogurtland in Fullerton, Calif., and the self-serve brand quickly became a sensation while establishing the industry standard for high quality and extensive customer flavor variety. Giving back to the communities it serves has been an integral part of Yogurtland’s operating values since the first location opened and supporting children’s charities has been a top priority for the Chang’s and the company. Through Yogurtland Cares, the company plans to enhance its community support.
Together with its fans Yogurtland hopes to provide needed financial supported for local hospitals
