Partner Spotlight of the Month: March of Dimes

Every month here on our blog, we'll be highlighting one of our non-profit partnerships. This month, learn a little more about the March of Dimes.

Ever since the days of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s presidency, the March of Dimes has been working tirelessly to improve the health of babies born everyday. They do this by funding important research on problems that threaten unborn babies and cause premature birth or birth defects. The March of Dimes also provides community programs and education so that moms can have healthy, happy, and full-term pregnancies. When there are trials and tribulations, the March of Dimes can offer support, comfort, and information.

At Eat’n Park, we know that babies and children are our not only the future leaders of tomorrow, but also the vibrancy of our families and communities. It’s important to us to take care of kids in our neighborhoods (and we do mean kids of ALL ages). That’s why Eat’n Park is a proud supporter of our local March of Dimes chapters, working together for stronger, healthier babies.

This year, you’ll see purple Smiley Cookies at 13 March of Dimes-sponsored walks throughout the Pennsylvania and Ohio areas. These walks demonstrate the commitment to healthier families and babies and are an opportunity for teams to celebrate, honor, and remember the babies who have touched their lives.
