Voodoo Donut to raise money for autism research with nostalgic donut

Voodoo Donut has announced its quarterly give-back campaign, partnering with the Organization for Autism Research (OAR) through the creation of the nostalgic-flavored Fluffernutter donut.

Available now through March 27 at participating Voodoo Donut locations in Portland and Eugene, Oregon; Vancouver, Washington; Austin, Cypress, Houston Katy, and San Antonio, Texas; and Denver, Colorado, the Fluffernutter is a peanut-shaped donut filled with marshmallowy fluff, dipped in creamy peanut butter and chopped roasted peanuts.

A portion of the proceeds from every Fluffernutter donut sold will go directly to OAR’s mission to apply research to the challenges of autism.

“OAR is extremely excited to partner with Voodoo Donut to help raise awareness and funds for OAR’s research and programs,” says Kristen Essex, OAR’s executive director. “The newly created Fluffernutter is a delicious way for Voodoo Donut’s patrons to support OAR’s mission and free resources for autistic individuals, their families, and supporters. Thank you to Voodoo Donut!”

“One of Voodoo’s fundamental values ​​is to give back to important causes throughout the year,” says Chris Schultz, Voodoo Donut chief executive officer. “We are proud to play even a small role in supporting OAR and their mission surrounding the issues and challenges that autistic children and adults and their families face daily.”
