Pampered Chef and the American Cancer Society have announced they are partnering to support free temporary housing for font-line health care workers during the pandemic. The American Cancer Society was forced to close its Hope Lodge program. Hope Lodge is a free service that gives living accommodations across the nation to those undergoing treatment and the safety of those guests. These closed lodges are being put to use now, however, as they have been made available to front-line health care workers as a place to rest between shifts and also help protect their loved ones.
 
“This nationwide initiative allows us to safely house and support front-line health care workers who are making personal sacrifices to keep our nation healthy,” said Maggie LaFleur, Corporate Relations at the American Cancer Society, in a news release. “We are thrilled to partner yet again with Pampered Chef on this critical initiative and look forward to seeing the tremendous impact we will have on flattening the curve and supporting our front-line health care workers.”
 
Also, effective through May 2020, the brand Pampered Chef will give $1 for every purchase of the Mix ‘N Chop and up to 30 percent of total sales from fundraiser shows to offset the operating costs of the 34 Hope Lodge locations across the country.
 
“Pampered Chef has been a trusted advocate for supporting families, and now more than ever, we are dedicated to lifting each other up so that no one faces these unprecedented challenges alone,” said Andrew Treanor, CEO of Pampered Chef, in a press release. “We are thankful that our longtime partnership with the American Cancer Society will allow us to keep Hope Lodge locations fully operational to comfortably house those fighting to protect us from COVID-19.”
 
The American Cancer Society has released multiple precautions people should take during the pandemic to make sure they stay healthy. Reminders include but are not limited to, frequent hand washing, avoid touching your face, avoid close contact, cover your sneeze or cough, and stay at home as much as possible.
