Cupcakes 101, located at 132 Bedford Center Road in Bedford, has donated more than 300 mini cupcakes each summer for the past three years for students and staff. The shop's owners, Kristen Morgan and Andy Thibodeau, happily start baking the cupcakes at 6:00 am and open their doors early for the dozens of boxes to be picked up and delivered to the schools.
Each year, Hannaford Supermarket on John E. Divine Drive in Manchester has donated a $25 gift card to help with ice cream costs for 300 students and staff.
"Both of these companies are so generous, and they are always willing to help when we ask," said Ready for Success program coordinator Beth Shea. "We are extremely grateful for their partnerships!"
