Ben's soft pretzels is giving back to one of their own

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- It's the power of the pretzel.  October is National Pretzel Month and National Cancer Awareness Month.

The Ben's Soft Pretzels location inside the University Park Mall, is giving back to the community, and one of their own.

Sara Pope is the bakery manager at the branch, and is a breast cancer survivor.

A couple of weeks ago, Pope was approached by other staff members, who wanted to help her and her family pay off the extensive medical bills from her treatments. 

They chose the start date of October 19, as it marks the two year anniversary of when Pope was first diagnosed. 

But Pope isn't the only person, they are trying to help.

$1 from each purchase made during these special promotions, will go to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

Tiffany Watts, the Vice President of Ben's Soft Pretzels, says she believes everyone should help support those who fought for their country. 

There are special deals and promotions going on all month, to help get the word out, and to help celebrate National Pretzel Month.
