Mars Sweet Land in Butler Co. fills backpacks for a “candy begin” to high school – CBS Pittsburgh
By: KDKA-TV News Staff
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A local candy store helps children in need and gets a lot of attention.
A Kindness Candy Board is on display in Mars Candy Land.
Children who need a dollar or two to buy goodies can grab a generous donation from the board.
The mission attracts a lot of attention and so does the owner Pammie Vivirito.
She and a team of volunteers have put together a giveaway backpack for children in the community. They stuff the backpacks and give them away to children all week long.
On Saturday they celebrate with a big ice cream party. Other backpacks will also be available there.
They say they want all students in the community to have a good start to the school year.
