“We are extremely proud to embark on this new partnership and to support such an important mission,” said Scott Livengood, owner, and CEO of Dewey’s Bakery. “We collaborated with the Habitat team to create this unique way to raise funds without the need for additional staff or extra retail space, and we’re excited to see what our team can accomplish.”
Dewey’s Bakery has been a treasured North Carolina tradition since it first opened in 1930 in downtown Winston-Salem. Launched in 2012, the Dewey’s Bakery fundraising program has helped hundreds of nonprofits, school groups and other organizations raise more than $3 million. The bakery’s holiday fundraising store program began with just one store in 2012 and grew to over 35 stores across the state in the 2018 holiday season.
“The ReStore customers now have a convenient way to shop for holiday treats for gifting and entertaining, while also giving back to their communities,” Livengood added.
Habitat for Humanity of North Carolina (Habitat NC) is a 501(c)(3) and one of 31 state support organizations (SSOs) across the country. Founded in 2008 through the efforts of local affiliates, Habitat NC facilitates increased housing production and neighborhood revitalization efforts across the state by providing a central agency to coordinate advocacy activities, provide training and technical support opportunities, aid in disaster recovery and serve as a focal point for disseminating statewide resources.
North Carolina’s 65 Habitat for Humanity affiliates are not subordinate to the SSO, rather, we exist to serve them.
This is a delicious win-win!
