A MESSAGE FROM Team Spread Love

 

At Spread, we believe that giving back moves everyone forward.  
 
To make this guiding principle actionable, this year, we are on a company-wide mission to contribute to The Eagles Autism Foundation and spur participation in The Eagles Autism Challenge. Our COO, Brooks Tanner, says it best: “We’re in the people business, not the bagel business.” This notion gets put into action through the heartfelt hospitality and elevated customer service that we provide to our guests seven days a week in our stores, but there are other ways that our company can also make an impact in the lives of others in the communities that we serve and around the world. About one in 44 children have been identified with autism spectrum disorder according to estimates from the CDC. While there is no medical detection or cure for autism, its numbers continue to grow at an alarming rate and are 4 times more common among boys than among girls. Unfortunately, autism has been historically underfunded, under-researched, and commonly misunderstood. 
 

We’re mobilizing a team benefiting this very worthy cause. Get involved! 
 
We have embarked on a journey to raise awareness and very much-needed funds benefiting the Eagles Autism Foundation. A non-profit organization created by Eagles Chairman/CEO, Jeffrey Lurie. What started as Mr. Lurie’s personal mission, inspired by autism in his own family, has expanded exponentially around the world, giving a voice and a platform to those who may have previously been overlooked. Now you have a chance to help us build hope for the future as our fundraising goal is $30,000 and we are determined to reach that by the May 31st deadline. Through research, advocacy, empathy, and unity the Eagles’ biggest strength is bringing people together, so they’re inviting the world to join them. And together, we can all make an impact that echoes in every neighborhood across the world. The most important thing to know is that every single dollar is invested in the community. Every. Single. Dollar. Here’s a recap of the 2022 Eagles Autism Challenge in case you’re not familiar with this epic event.

Measuring the success of this campaign doesn’t just come in dollars. If we can create a further understanding of autism, we’ve done our part. It begins with a collective understanding, a desire to self-educate, and to help others cope with challenges big and small. Spread will be donating a portion of our proceeds from all stores to The Eagles Autism Foundation which was collected on Eagles Game Days this past season. We’ll share details on our social channels and provide an update here as well.
