Locally owned Panera Bread® bakery-cafes in Central and Western Virginia are raising money for University of Virginia Children’s Hospital through the “Change for Children” campaign. Throughout 2016, Change for Children will encourage diners to round up purchases to a whole dollar amount to benefit UVA Children’s Hospital, with a goal of raising $100,000.
The fundraiser began Thursday at Panera Bread locations in Charlottesville and begins today at other Panera Bread locations in Virginia, including:
Blacksburg Christiansburg Culpeper Harrisonburg Lynchburg Roanoke Warrenton Waynesboro Winchester
