Bedford Candies and Rita’s are committed to giving back to the communities we serve. We are proud to be strong supporters of our community by partnering with many local organizations to help them reach their fundraising goals. In 2018, we supported over 175 groups by giving back over $173,000 in fundraising profits. In addition, we provided donations and sponsorships to local organizations that totaled over $10,000. We look forward to continuing to support our communities even more now that we have added Rita’s to each of our locations.
