It's hard to believe, but we are officially one full month into the new year! I am so proud of what we accomplished in 2017... sales from Wellington Toffee went to a number of fine organizations that we partner with. We helped provide the following:
- Basic needs like school supplies, food, and toiletries to students in Davenport, Iowa
- A total of four annual scholarships awarded to students in Uganda
- School supplies, food, and clothing for over 600 students in the Dominican Republic
In 2018, our goal is to continue building on this progress and spread our reach to help even more people who are in need. Goals for 2018 include kicking off a new reading program and opening a baby pantry in Davenport, as well as a food distribution program in the Dominican to provide monthly supplies to many who are currently struggling with hunger. Finally, we aim to provide entrepreneurial capital for students in Uganda who are graduating and preparing for a bright future.
If you haven't visited our website in awhile, I encourage you to do so! I'm excited to share that it has undergone a bit of a facelift and should prove to be more user-friendly. There is a convenient Shop section built right into the homepage, helping to get our delicious homemade toffee into your hands quickly. Also, make sure you're following along with us on Instagram and Facebook for seasonal flavor announcements, special deals, and a first-hand look at some of the organizations we're helping.
At the end of the day, we couldn't do any of this without your support. On behalf of the Wellington Toffee team, I thank you for your continued business!
