The cookies that you buy today just might help someone else to have a hot meal tomorrow. That’s because Connie Milstein and Connie’s Bakery and General Store donate 100% of their after-tax profits from the store to six charitable non-profits. They do so with the Foundation of Sweet Success and they select different organizations each year to receive the donations.
This year, Meals-on-Wheels of White Plains is one of the recipients of the Foundation Sweet Success money. They are a non-profit organization that delivers food and companionship to people who might otherwise be alone and hungry all day.
Their services are available for anyone living in the city of White Plains who can’t shop for meals for themselves or who can’t prepare their own meals. This is regardless of age or income. They accept referrals from all sorts of locations including doctors, hospitals, social workers, family and more.
Their volunteers deliver two nutritious meals, planned by a professional dietician, a day to homebound individuals.
