Boxes Of Hearts – Social Enterprise

Boxes of Hearts is a social enterprise program offered through Community of Hearts. The skills the participants learn while participating in this unique program will help them transition into the workforce and maintain employment within the community.

From now until mid-June, the participants will be focusing on making and selling homemade dog cookies in 250g bags. We are currently featuring Pumpkin Dog cookies that your fur baby is sure to love.

We sampled the cookies within our community with great success. One dog owner said, “my fur baby loved them! Now that they are gone, he doesn’t want to go back to his old treats!”.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to treat your fur baby to some locally made, gluten-free dog cookies while supporting this great initiative.

Quantities are limited. Click here to order yours online at EventBrite today. Click here for the full flyer.
