The Exclusive Brands team recently spread some holiday cheer using Red Button Vintage Creamery Classic Christmas Candies. The team partnered with the Life is Worth Living Foundation, an organization that raises awareness and educates, to prevent suicide state-wide and in Tooele County.
Each year, Life is Worth Living hosts a holiday craft fair fundraiser with local vendors, delicious food, pictures with Santa, letters to Santa and a craft for kids. The craft is making a candy house made with an empty milk carton, graham crackers, and frosting to form a house. Candy accents are added to make the perfect festive decoration.
The Exclusive Brands team donated Crav’n Flavor Graham Crackers, Food Club frosting, and plenty of Red Button Vintage Creamery Classic Christmas Candies to the worthwhile cause. Over 300 houses were decorated by children in the Tooele Community with assistance from the HOPE Squad, a peer-to-peer suicide prevention program.
“Unfortunately, many people are impacted by suicide. It’s a cause that is incredibly meaningful to all of us. It’s heartwarming when we can come together and assist such a wonderful effort and find ways to help make the holidays brighter for others,” said Sarah Pettit, Exclusive Brands marketing.
If you know anyone struggling with suicide, please have them reach out to the AFS Employee Assistance Program at 800-832-7733.
