New York — During the past several months Yowie Group Ltd. has donated nearly 10,000 treats to healthcare centers, children’s hospitals and shelters to show support and admiration for front-line healthcare workers and patients, the company reports.
In early May the candymaker began coordinating with hospitals and shelters for donations of surprise chocolate eggs, gummies and bites, according to Yowie. Some of the organizations supported include the Arkansas Children’s Northwest Hospital, Misericordia Home in Chicago, Arkansas’ Mercy Hospital Northwest and Peace at Home Family Shelter.
“Our company has always been about bringing a smile to children’s faces through our variety of products and we wanted to extend this to our frontline workers and their patients during this challenging time,” says Cynthia Thayer, CMO of Yowie Group. “Enjoying a quick sweet treat or the ability to offer one to a young patient while working around the clock to save lives is something we knew we could provide in supporting our essential workers.”
