More than 50 locations of Kneaders are hosting fundraisers for local schools.

When you go into the store, order on the app or online on Monday, May 2 between 5-8pm, they will donate 20 percent of sales to a local school in the area.

Giving back is a big part of Kneaders, in 2022 they've already donated $50,000.

Natasha Ireland from Kneaders joined us in studio and told us you can also purchase gifts, gift cards or baskets for teachers at their stores.
