BALTIMORE, MD (October 10, 2019) — Goetze’s Candy Company, donated more than $3,200 in new school supplies to students at Holabird Academy, a Baltimore City public school serving more than 500 students in grades pre-K through eighth grade.
After learning that the students and teachers could benefit from receiving new school supplies, Goetze’s set up stations at Back to School Night where parents and students were invited to pick up the tools they needed to kick off a successful school year.
“We are thrilled Goetze’s has donated supplies that will support our scholars’ success heading into the new school year,” said Stephanie Novak Pappas, Principal of Holabird Academy. “Ensuring that our scholars have the supplies they need levels the playing field. Our scholars can concentrate on their academics, and our busy families can feel confident that their children have the tools they need to succeed. This is a huge support, and we are so grateful for this partnership!"
“Goetze's takes pride in giving back to the community that has given us so much for well over a century,” said Mitchell Goetze, CEO of Goetze’s Candy Company. “Whether that’s through donating our time and resources to programs in need, or creating sweet moments with our caramel treats, we will continue to support as many people as we can for generations to come.”
A family-run organization, Goetze’s Candy Company began making sweet treats in Maryland in 1895. Today, the Goetze family continues to lead the business as it embarks on its 125th anniversary coming up in 2020. For more information about Goetze’s Candy Company, visit www.goetzecandy.com.
