Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) March 04, 2013
Doing good feels good for the people at Walkers Shortbread, the much loved and family-owned Scottish shortbread bakery. Following a successful partnership with the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) in 2012, through which Walkers raised over $25,000 for the ASPCA, the company announces that they will commit to a second year of supporting with the animal welfare organization. Walkers will double its minimum donation amount to $50,000 for 2013 by contributing 10 cents from the sale of each of the Scottie Dog Shortbread 3.9-ounce cartons and 20 cents per unit for larger sizes. This donation will support the ASPCA’s life-saving work for animals across the country.
“Our relationship with the ASPCA has been tremendously well received,” says Steve Dawson, president of Walkers Shortbread, Inc. “The Scottie Dog cookies we introduced last year have sold strongly, proving that many of our customers feel that the ASPCA is a worthy organization for us to support.”
Dawson adds, “Our work with the ASPCA will continue to grow as we introduce new products such as our forthcoming new Chocolate Scottie Dog item. We’re delighted to team up with the ASPCA for another year and support their initiatives to end animal cruelty and homelessness nationwide.”
Walkers Scottie Dog products can be purchased online directly from Walkers and at select retailers nationwide. For more information about Walkers Shortbread’s work to support the ASPCA, please visit http://www.walkersus.com/aspca.
