Sweenor’s Chocolate Fundraiser to Benefit Special Olympics Rhode Island

April is one of the “sweetest” months in Rhode Island with the promotion of the Rhode Island Social Responsibility Committee’s “Sweenor’s Candy Drive” to benefit Special Olympics Rhode Island. Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the U.S. nearly a year ago, sadly, events such as the candy drive were affected as the fundraiser event was cancelled weeks leading up to the start of the initiative.

Considering hope on the horizon, the Rhode Island Social Responsibility voted to host the Sweenor’s Candy Drive for the month of April. This fundraiser gives your credit union the opportunity to reach out to members in a variety of ways for a very worthy cause.

The candy bars are great to sell in your lobbies to both members and staff (for lobbies that are open) or use as giveaways on special occasions (Easter, Administrative Professionals Day), or through your drive-up (greet your members outside at the drive up and surprise them with a free candy bar and thank them). The options are yours to choose – sell or give away for free.

CLICK HERE for the order form. Be sure to submit your order no later than Friday, March 5, to allow Sweenor’s the time needed to safely prepare and deliver all orders. Candy will be delivered by the last week of March. If you have any questions, contact Donna Bevilacqua at CCUA.
