Seven Stars Bakery will donate 100 percent of their sales from their 3 locations to We Share Hope on January 2, 2015. WOW!
Opened on January 2, 2001, Seven Stars Bakery is a family owned and operated business that started on Hope St. in Providence, and has grown to 3 locations (820 Hope St. & 342 Broadway in Providence, Rumford Center and 20 Newman Ave in East Providence). Owners Lynn & Jim Williams decided to donate their sales to We Share Hope food rescue on their 5th anniversary as a way to give back to the community. “We had a successful neighborhood business on our hands and it was time to give back to the community that gave so much to us,” Lynn Williams said.
For 9 years, Seven Stars donated their proceeds to Rhode Island Food Bank. This year, they chose We Share Hope. “We’ve worked with We Share Hope for years. They pick up our leftovers and get them to people that need to eat in our community. The best experience we ever had was when we heard from a woman who gets food from one of the pantries that they service. She was ecstatic to be able to feed her daughter good bread!” Lynn Williams said.
The proceeds will support We Share Hope, a food rescue organization that aims to resolve the hunger problem in Rhode Island by providing food to charities that feed the poor and underprivileged. We Share Hope provide donated food to over 100 public, private, and faith-based organizations throughout Rhode Island.
Based in Warren Rhode Island, We Share Hope is a community of individuals who are committed to serving the common good. We Share Hope locates, gathers, and distributes food to groups that feed the poor, distressed, and the under privileged. To make donations, or find out about volunteering go to www.wesharehope.org.
