Buy Local Chocolate, Support Local Students: Trekkers’ Students to Raise Money with Bixby & Co. Catalog Fundraiser
Jan. 8 2020 – Trekkers’ Bixby & Co. Catalog Fundraiser is back! For another year, Rockland-based Trekkers teams up with Bixby & Co. in a locals-supporting-locals fundraising effort. To help Trekkers students raise funds for their program dues, Bixby & Co., a chocolate confectionery company, is offering a catalog of treats to the community. Running now through February 7th, 30% of every item sold by a student will go directly to that student’s dues, which enables participation in opportunities like college and career expeditions.
New this year are Creamy Pumpkin Caramels, sold alongside favorites like Maine Sea Salted Caramels, Bixby Bites, Needhams, bean to bar chocolates, drinking chocolate, cacao nibs, puffin pops, snacking clusters, peanut butter bites, and beauty products like chocolate lip balm and a cacao scrub bar. Items range in price from $1.99 to $33.
To purchase items for this fundraiser, please reach out to a Trekkers student or call the Trekkers office at 594-5095. Orders must be submitted by Friday, February 7th. Students and those who order through the Trekkers office will be able to pick up fulfilled orders during the first week in March. Catalogs are available at the Trekkers office, located at 58 Park Street, Suite 202 in Rockland and open from 9am – 5pm, Monday through Friday.
