Connie’s Bakery and General Store has established a giving vehicle called Foundation Sweet Success. 100% of after-tax profits from Connie’s Bakery and General Store support charitable work. Each year, they select six non-profit organizations to designate as the recipients of their charitable funds.
The Breadwinners Foundation is one of these organizations that receive donations from Connie’s Bakery and General Store, owned by Connie Milstein. This non-profit organization offers short term financial assistance and resource information to families who are dealing with economic hardship after the tragic loss of the primary breadwinner. For nine years now, The Breadwinners Foundation has been offering financial support including medical expenses, mortgage payments, funeral costs and more.
The Breadwinners Foundation was started by Keith J. Ahlers when his brother died suddenly, leaving his family without sufficient resources. The organization is funded entirely by contributions from community members and organizations, such as Connie’s Bakery and General Store.
