BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) — Bobo’s Oat Bars is using a new flavor — inspired by a young fan — to make a difference in the lives of families. Thomas Buck lost his battle with cancer at just 4 years old. He loved Bobo Bars, so the company dedicated its new Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip flavor to him.
Thomas’ mother works for There With Care, a local nonprofit that helps families who have children with terminal illnesses. To celebrate the launch of Thomas’ oat bar, the two companies came together for a day of giving back.READ MORE: Colorado Lawmakers Consider Auditing State’s COVID Testing Program: 'It’s Not Fair 1,100 Nursing Home Patients Died'
Volunteers spent Friday morning making care packages full of toys and activities for sick in the hospital. Bobo’s says the Thomas Bar combines the passions of both companies to create a product that’s meaningful.READ MORE: Ptarmigan Fire: Hundreds Remain Evacuated Morning After Wildfire Started Near Homes In Summit County
“At Bobo’s we talk a lot about bringing people home and feeding them like family. We talk a lot about love in this company. As we have gotten closer to There with Care, we decided we would honor Thomas and raise money and awareness for the organization,” said TJ McIntyre, CEO of BoBo’s Oat Bars.
Thirty percent of sales from the There with Care Bars will be donated directly to There with Care.MORE NEWS: Denver Weather: Tuesday Is Our Final Warm Day, Cool And Wet Weather Is Coming
