CHERRY HILL, NJ--(Marketwired - October 03, 2013) -
Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish® crackers have brought millions of smiles to children for years. Now, they will be joining the Go4theGoal Foundation to bring those smiles to children being treated for cancer across the United States. Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers will be featured on Go4theGoal's new Kart 4 Kids program, launching in a dozen hospitals this fall, as well as being featured in other hospital programs and Go4theGoal events.
"We commend Go4theGoal's commitment to pediatric cancer support and research and are happy to be able to partner with them," said Jared Konstanty, Senior Vice President, General Manager Snacks at Pepperidge Farm. "We hope we can bring some smiles to those children when they need it most."
In addition to their generous product donation, the Goldfish brand has also made a monetary donation to Go4theGoal. These funds will be used to renovate special areas of oncology units in need of revitalizing at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, PA.
