"Sweet Alfas isn't just about selling cookies to make a living, it's about wholeheartedly contributing to the strengths of our community." - Melissa Casaretto

The Peruvian Alfajor cookie has arrived in Parker, Colorado and boasts a 50-year-old winning family recipe. The unique flavors transcend beyond deliciousness and tease at any foodie’s sweet tooth addiction. Sweet Alfas has built a reputation of giving back and donating to local charities while entrenching themselves in the community. This month they plan to donate proceeds to Combat Veterans, Cowboy Up program to help servicemen fighting PTSD.
Recently, the Peruvian influenced cookie company reestablished itself as a home business in Parker, Colorado with intentions to expand in Douglas County in 2016. Melissa Casaretto founded Sweet Alfas in 2013 as a fundraiser to help raise money for her daughter’s performing arts and dance school in Campbell, California. Melissa and her family would take orders via social media and bake in the evenings in their spare time. Eventually, they raised enough funds to contribute to dance students so that they could participate in a performance at Disneyland.
Supporting the performing arts was a great start but they also began to donate proceeds to local charities in need. The popularity of Sweet Alfas in the San Francisco Bay Area suddenly grew as orders started coming in for large events like weddings, birthdays, awards banquets and work parties during the holiday season.
As noted in their recent blog http://sweetalfas.com/giving-back-sweet-alfas-charities-for-2015/, the community comes first for Sweet Alfas. They plan to donate a portion of profits to local organizations here in Parker, Douglas County, and all surrounding Denver communities. Sweet Alfas will donate 5 % to local charities to help support the community and get involved in local activities. For the entire month of September, Sweet Alfas plans to donate 5% of proceeds to Combat Veterans, Cowboy Up. An organization that develops an extremely effective recovery program for Veterans suffering from the debilitating effects of PTSD.
Additional future plans for Sweet Alfas are to open a local bakery storefront in 2016. In the meantime, you can order directly from their website at http://www.sweetalfas.com/order
