Chocolate School Spring Fundraiser!

The smell of chocolate is in the air!

by Pearson, Weiner, Highland Chocolates – February 28, 2017

Today on Wellsboro Home Page, correspondent Rhonda Pearson met with Susan Gage, PTO president for the Wellsboro elementary schools, and Lacey Kennedy of Highland Chocolates, to talk about the Spring Fundraiser for the elementary schools going on now through March 10th.

The smell of chocolate is in the air! The Spring Fundraiser is always something to look forward to, especially with Easter right around the corner, and there is something for everyone. Highland Chocolates also creates special products specifically for the fundraiser that are not offered at any other time. The Hornet Bark has a nice “sting” to it and can be ordered on its own or in a wooden box specially designed for the fundraiser by Senior’s Creations. They also have a new product this year, the Hornet Egg, which is sure to become a favorite, as well as the ever-popular green and white nonpareils.

The PTO for the Wellsboro elementary schools has been partnering with Highland Chocolates for about three years. Highland Chocolates is currently owned and operated by Partners In Progress, a non-profit agency that provides employment and training opportunities for local residents with disabilities. Proceeds from the fundraiser help the elementary schools with field trips, special events, and purchasing birthday books. They are also shared with Highland Chocolates who puts all their proceeds raised directly back to benefit those they serve.

The Spring Fundraiser is going on now through March 10th. If you know of any parents with children in grades K – 4th grades, please get in touch with them and help support a great cause. If you don’t happen to know anyone with elementary age children, but love chocolate and want to lend your support, please contact Susan Gage at Thank you for visiting Wellsboro Home Page.
