Nurses working long hours probably need a jolt of caffeine or rush of sugar to propel them through another shift, so Cinnabon’s got them covered during National Nurses Week. 

From May 6 to 12, participating Cinnabon bakeries will offer a choice of a free Cinnabon Classic Roll, MiniBon or a four-count of the new BonBites to nurses presenting their medical ID badge.

The only Tri-State Cinnabon restaurant is located inside Tri-County Mall at 11700 Princeton Pike in Springdale.

Since 2000, Cinnabon has proudly supported The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Foundation, an organization created to thank to nurses for the extraordinary and compassionate care they provide.

The relationship began when a patient requested Cinnabon cinnamon rolls be given to all his nurses as a gift of appreciation for the care and compassion shown to him during his illness. Today, Cinnabon continues to recognize the nursing community by participating in the annual Nurses Week giveaway and monthly DAISY Award celebrations.

"Nurses dedicate their lives to others every day. Providing Cinnabon treats is one small way that we can give thanks to those that give to others," said Joe Guith, president of Cinnabon, in a news release. "Seventeen years and over a million cinnamon rolls later, we couldn't be more proud to support healthcare professionals during Nurses Week and throughout the year.”
