Not only do we want to nourish all of you, our customers, but we also believe we have a responsibility to share our bounty with our local charitable community.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.
Every month, we select local not-for-profit organizations aligned with our charitable values and send a portion of our proceeds directly to them. Our donations, which come from customers who decide to “round up” their purchases, have helped the following organizations carry out their own missions. Together, we can all make an impact on thousands of lives in our region:
Alzheimer's Association - Hudson Valley Chapter
The American Heart Association - Hudson Valley Chapter
Breast Cancer Options
The Center for Creative Education
The Child Abuse Prevention Center, Inc.
The Children's Home of Kingston
Exhale to Inhale
Family of Woodstock

Exhale to Inhale and Circle of Friends
for the Dying are our charities for September
Since 2013, Exhale to Inhale has empowered over 3,000 survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault through the healing practice of trauma-informed yoga. Their trauma-informed approach helps survivors reconnect with their own bodies and inherent strength so they can better navigate the challenges they are experiencing.
A Home for the Dying is a model of care currently thriving in multiple locations in northern New York State. There, terminally ill patients and their families can take advantage of a welcome alternative to staying in a hospital, entering a nursing facility, or hiring expensive home help.
