Our local community is at the heart and soul of everything we do at Sidecar, and we are dedicated to sharing our appreciation. For each calendar year, we will select six partner charities/non-profits – each from a different (and important!) philanthropic category – and will donate a portion of our proceeds to these groups. Additionally, throughout the year,  we will team up with them on specific initiatives, events, and/or anything else fun they might have going on in order to always be supporting and promoting their individual missions. We hope you will join us in our efforts to save the world…one doughnut at a time!
