In 2020, Corner Bakery kept the spirit of giving alive throughout its communities by raising funds for its national charity partner, Habitat for Humanity.
Through multiple efforts, including a Build Day sponsorship and various fundraisers conducted both in-cafe and online throughout 2019 and 2020, the bakery-café chain surpassed its fundraising goal and donated a total of $103,758 towards Habitat for Humanity’s mission of bringing people together to build homes, community and hope.
“We’re thankful for Corner Bakery’s generosity and shared commitment to protecting the well-being of our communities,” says Julie Laird Davis, vice president of corporate and cause marketing partnerships at Habitat for Humanity International. “Their unwavering support throughout our partnership will help more families build strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership.”
“With family homes now acting as schools and offices, the need for stable and reliable housing has never been so important,” says Donna Josephson, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Corner Bakery. “This past year has been incredibly difficult for the restaurant industry, but we remained committed to raising much needed funds for lifechanging organizations like Habitat for Humanity. These organizations need our support now more than ever, and we couldn’t have accomplished our goal and made such an impact without the support of our incredible guests. Thank you to everyone who joined us in raising money for these organizations that can help make a true difference throughout our communities and beyond.”
