One thing I love about being a small business owner is being able to pursue my passion for teaching people how to create easy, delicious and healthy meals for the benefit of our community.
In the first quarter of 2017, we donated more than $4,500 retail value in gift baskets, products and class tickets to silent auctions and other events sponsored by 13 different local non-profit organizations and schools. Our gifts have supported local children, people who suffer with chronic disease or mental illness, and veterans, to name a few.
I’m especially delighted to support Touchstone Mental Health programs and clients. I’m a member of Touchstone’s board of directors and I’m so impressed with their programs and impact on our community and individuals affected by mental illness!
We can’t support this many requests every quarter, but if your organization’s need meets our Community Support Criteria, we would be happy to hear from you. We especially enjoy supporting causes that are important to our customers.
We will be working on the list below to add links to the organization’s webpages, where possible, so you can learn more about the good they are doing in this world. Perhaps you’ll find one that you’d like to support along with us!
