Giving back…and having fun doing it!

When we think about Easter, we think bunnies, kids and, of course, chocolate. Each year at The Happy Chocolatier we try to do something fun for the kids prior to Easter. This year, in keeping with our mission to support our local community, we have decided to host a kids event that will support Household Goods (formerly HGRM), a fantastic organization located here in Acton. The event will take place on Saturday, March 21 from 12-3 pm.

We think of it as a “mini service project.” Kids can decorate a spring-themed candy coated rice crispy treat, watch us make chocolates, and sample some of our chocolates. In return, they (or mom and dad) will make a donation to help Household Goods help those most in need. So, the kids get a treat (or two) and help others in return. You can find all the details here.

A representative of Household Goods will be on-site to share news about their mission. Household Goods is not-for-profit organization that provides household goods, free of charge, to people in need. They accept donations of gently used household items that help people make a home. As an organization staffed by volunteers, they depend on the generosity of community members for goods, time and financial support. So our donation drive will be greatly appreciated and put to very good use.

The best part of all: it shows kids how giving back can be fun! And think of the happiness your contribution will bring to someone in need.
