MSU Bakers Supports American Heart Month

Published On: February 9, 2017

For the sixth consecutive year, MSU Bakers is proud to support American Heart Month throughout February.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for one out of every four deaths annually. MSU Bakers is doing their part to heighten awareness and help fight heart disease by donating $1 from every order of seasonal products to the American Heart Association (AHA).

“We’ve supported this cause since 2012, and MSU Bakers is proud to reinforce the importance of heart disease awareness in the greater East Lansing community,” said Cindy Baswell, MSU Bakers manager. “Although it’s unusual to have desserts serve as the vessel of awareness, we believe it’s critical for people of all ages to be mindful of the cause, and we appreciate our customers’ support of this worthy organization and its mission.”

Heart-shaped, hand-decorated sugar cookies will be offered as well as a do-it-yourself heart-shaped sugar cookie kit for creative customers who wish to adorn their own with family and friends. Additionally, valentine cupcakes, valentine cookie whoopie pies and a chocolate brownie blaster will be included in the lineup of seasonal items.

All products are $15 each (per dozen for cookies, cupcakes and whoopie pies, and for one eight-inch blaster), and $1 from every order will be donated to the AHA.

Product delivery is available to on-campus locations at Michigan State University with a $2 delivery fee. Pick up is also available at MSU Bakers, located at 220 Service Road in East Lansing.
