Free cookies in Campus Martius on Thursday: The Cookie CAREavan rolls into Detroit

This Thursday, June 23, the Cookie CAREavan motors into Detroit with a stop at Campus Martius and will give out free cookies from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Last month DoubleTree by Hilton Hotels kicked off a nationwide tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its iconic chocolate chip cookie. The DoubleTree by Hilton Cookie CAREavan embarked on a 10-week, 10,000-mile, 50-city tour to bring its warm chocolaty goodness to tired travelers, weary workers and local charities nationwide.

"In today’s busy world the little things can mean everything, and we feel that the simple act of kindness of a chocolate chip cookie can put a smile on a person’s face anywhere and everywhere across America, " said John Greenleaf, vice president – brand marketing, DoubleTree by Hilton.

The Cookie CAREavan is also connecting with local charities in each city it visits for a cookie drop. In Detroit they will stop by the Cass Community Center and The Ronald McDonald House to bring a smile to those that need it most.

Cookie facts:

  • The company started giving away its signature cookies in 1986.
  • Every guest who checks into a DoubleTree by Hilton hotel receives a warm chocolate chip cookie.
  • The hotel chain gives out approximately 60,000 cookies a day and 21 million a year.
  • The cookies have an average of 20 chocolate chips per cookie.
  • Only a few bakeries know the cookie’s secret recipe.

If you work in downtown Detroit or have some free time on Thursday be sure to stop by Campus Martius for your free chocolate chip cookie. It's sure to put a smile on your face!
