Coborn’s Sauk Centre helps brighten the day for family of a girl battling cancer


Coborn’s in Sauk Centre recently helped brighten the day for the family of a young girl battling Stage 3 Kidney Cancer. The store donated cookies to a fundraiser that was being held for the 4-year-old girl. Store Director Jamie Shoutz  partnered with the Bake Shoppe and Amanda Hansen, Pastry Arts Training Specialist, to make it happen.

“When I talked to this guest, you could sense the frustration that she was just trying to get cookies somewhere, and I just felt we could make a difference in her life at this time,” Shoutz said.

Shoutz says the young girl’s mother was overjoyed and overwhelmed when she saw the cookies. Others at the event were impressed how they turned out as well.

“I’m really proud we were able to do this, being part of it was awesome,” he added. “I am proud of what we did – what a fantastic job the Bake Shoppe did with the cookies.”
