It’s not often that you do something important for the world when you purchase a package of cookies; but once in a while this is actually the case. Connie’s Bakery and General Store, owned by Connie Milstein, donates 100% of its after-tax profits to six non-profit organizations. Each year, they change the list of non-profits, allowing many organizations to benefit from their efforts.
This year, Guiding Eyes for the Blind is one of the non-profit organizations benefiting from Foundation Sweet Success. They are an internationally accredited, nonprofit guide dog school with over 50 years of providing the blind and visually impaired with Guiding Eyes dogs, training and support services.
Founded in 1956, Guiding Eyes for the Blind focuses on helping the blind and visually impaired to enjoy freedom of movement and independence. They are one of the foremost guide dog schools in the world, with more than 7000 guide dog teams in place at this time.
Connie’s Bakery and General Store, with Connie Milstein, is proud to help Guiding Eyes for the Blind to fulfill its mission this year.
