Giving more than thanks.
One of our most vital local organizations is Heartbeet Lifesharing, located in nearby Hardwick, VT. Heartbeet is a unique community made up of developmentally disabled adults and long-term volunteers & coworkers, who live together and form meaningful relationships in extended family households. Daily life at Heartbeet engages with both the land and the community; residents maintain the grounds and learn farm & garden skills, and also work & volunteer at many local area businesses, like our own. Above are Heartbeeters Suzannah, Dave, and Annie wrapping Weybridge in our shipping room.
Heartbeet has also recently broken ground on a new Community Center, which will serve as both the heart of their facility and as a cultural hub for Hardwick and the greater Northeast Kingdom. The new building will include a theater, conference rooms, a library/resource center, and much more. Find out more about how you can support the project directly by clicking here.
This week, we want to give more than thanks to our local heroes and inspirations. We will be donating 10% of the week's online sales to Heartbeet's new Community Center! This includes orders placed between 11/23 - 11/29. Planning a cheese gift this holiday season?
