The Mighty Cookie Company September 23, 2015 20:56

After a year in the making Crate West Gift Boxes has finally launched…

     Thank you for visiting cratewest.com! We are so excited to be launching this business. Combining two of our favorite things; sharing great food and where we live. This not only gave us a great idea for our new business venture but also to help support our local economy.

     One of the most exciting parts of this process has been meeting all of these talented people who are truly passionate about what they do and the products they make. We have discovered so many amazing people and we wanted to share their stories so we’ve created this blog to try and highlight some of our local artisans.

     When we set out to find local goodies to share with you we came across The Mighty Cookie Company. While Brenda has been our main contact she is definitely not the only volunteer in this not-for-profit society. It was founded and supported by a group of people who believe in the power of kids….and cookies. They provide funding and support to children’s community groups and organizations by making and selling cookies and donating 100% of the net profits. They have the support of a fantastic group of volunteers who selflessly give their time and talents to their cause. They also depend on the kindness of strangers and the generosity of friends and family.

     We got a chance to meet Brenda and Connie, a couple of the local volunteers at the Apple Box where they share a kitchen with four other businesses. They explained to us where the proceeds of the business are spent. Last year the lucky recipients of The Mighty Cookie Companies donations were Kid Sport and the Red Crosses anti-bullying program, Respect Ed. If you know of a deserving charity that supports children’s health and education you can email info@mightycookiecompany.org.

     We have also been lucky enough to sample a few of the delicious cookies they make. You can order anything from chocolate chip cookies, biscotti and lemon bars. If you have an event that you would like to order cookies for you can also email info@mightycookiecompany.org.  The Mighty Cookie Companies team will take the time to discuss and develop whatever you need with whatever ingredients or dietary restrictions you require.

     One of our favorite creations is the custom logo cookie they created for us! Brenda has worked very hard at making the cookie exactly what we envisioned and has graciously taken all of our ideas, questions and random e-mails into consideration when creating this signature for us. We are so happy to be able to work with this company & look forward to our future creations with The Mighty Cookie Company.
