Our local community is at the heart and soul of everything we do at Sidecar, and we are dedicated to sharing our appreciation. The SideCares program is our way of giving back to the beautiful communities in and around each our shop locations. We do this by donating leftover doughnuts to local food banks and shelters, as well as by collaborating with non-profits whose causes are near and dear to not only our hearts, but also those of our beloved dough-nuts. We can’t wait for you to join us in our efforts to save the world…one doughnut at a time!
This April, we’ve joined forces with an amazing member of our community, Laura Crago, and the animal rescue organization Wags and Walks. As part of this month’s program, we have officially re-named our Huckleberry doughnut ‘Huckleberry to the Rescue,’ and will be donating a portion of all proceeds from the flavor to Wags and Walks. And here’s why…
A couple months ago, while working on something totally different, we learned of the incredible, spirited, and passionate Soul Cycle instructor and lululemon ambassador, Laura Crago. Crago (as her friends and family know her best!) is a huge Sidecar fan, who started out as a regular at our Santa Monica shop, and now is a mainstay at our new Del Mar location (she moved… in case you were wondering). While living in LA, she adopted a pup from Wags and Walks, and named him… wait for it… HUCKLEBERRY! Sadly, Huckleberry went missing about a year and a half ago, and he has yet to be found. Crago regularly brings toys and other memorabilia belonging to Huckleberry to her Soul Cycle classes and dedicates the rides to him, and she has even created an Instagram account for the little guy, @huckleberrytotherescue (and there’s the inspo for the renamed doughnut, friends!).
Learning all of this seemed like a sign from above, so we immediately contacted Crago and partnered up! All month long we’ll be raising funds and awareness for Huckleberry’s alma mater, Wags and Walks, as well as helping Crago spread the word about a new non-profit she’s involved with as a result of this experience, A Way Home for Animals, Inc.
