At Seven Stars Bakery, we take our role as a member of the Rhode Island community seriously! At the end of each day, we donate all unsold bread, pastries, sandwiches and salads to local food pantries and shelters. In early January each year, we hold our annual Donation Day when we donate 100% of the day's SALES from all of our cafes to local non-profit organizations. Additionally, throughout the year, we donate oodles of gift cards and platters to local charity events, auctions and raffles.
Gift Cards & Baked Good Donation Guidelines
We do our best to honor all requests to qualified organizations that apply for a gift card or product donation. If you would like to apply, please make sure that you can answer ‘yes’ to the following questions:
– My organization is a nonprofit, charitable organization pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
– The goal of my organization or event is to enrich the health, educational or cultural well being of our community.
– My organization is non-partisan and my event is not a political fundraiser.
