When Faith learned about Greyston's open hiring policy, benefits, and apprenticeship program, she knew what she wanted. Her relentless phone calls and persistance paid off in a full-time position in December 2001. She was then 43, a struggling single parent who had been in and out of jobs where she never felt like more than a "punch-card number."

Let's catch up!

Greetings, Do-Gooders!

We are just 2 days shy of Thanksgiving- a sure sign that the holiday season is truly upon us. What are all of your plans for Thursday? Any fun traditions your friends & family have? May as well take this opportunity to remind you of our 10% OFF coupon code if you enter TURKEY09 at checkout at our online store (before November 26th, so hurry up!)

Moving on, let's talk about one of the most important holidays of this season: National Brownie Day. In case you haven't heard of this delicious day, it takes place every year on the 8th of December. This National Brownie Day, we'll be heading to Whole Foods' in New York City and Connecticut to serve up some tasty free brownies (and maybe a little Ben & Jerry's ice cream...) to celebrate the day that celebrates our prized dessert form! Look out for more information on our National Brownie Day efforts in the coming week and feel free to reach out with any questions. Updates will be given on Facebook and Twitter! (see Facebook and and follow us!)

Be well and thanks for supporting Greyston Bakery and the Do-Goodie Family!

COMING SOON: Blog from our new CEO, Bill Mistretta
