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!
Each of our store teams have selected a local charitable organization to partner with for the duration of 2019. Throughout the year, each shop will donate a portion of proceeds from our monthly SideCares flavor to their chosen non-profit, as well as further support the organization’s mission by sponsoring events and initiatives, providing volunteer services, and more. To learn about the 2019 charitable partner for the Sidecar location near you, and to find out more about how you can help, keep readin’!
