Partnering with Local Businesses
Oct 22, 2014 | Written by Anupa Mueller
We enjoy being part of the local Tarrytown & Sleepy Hollow community. One of the activities we particularly appreciate is partnering with local businesses for specific projects. We provide Tea for local Chamber Events, Gift Baskets for Silent Auctions and, recently, a Sandwich Platter for the Fred Astaire Dance Studio fundraiser. This week, we're partnering with the Tarrytown Nursery School for their Fall fundraiser. We gave them teas at wholesale rates which they offered to their members at retail, thus spreading the cheer of Tea and raising funds for their school. Tarrytown Nursery School has an interesting history - it was founded in the summer of 1949 when a group of eleven enterprising moms organized a playgroup on the Hackley School grounds, where they took turns watching the children once a week. Today it is chartered by the State of New York as a non-profit, cooperative school and registered with the Department of Education. The Tea list this year includes perennial favorites such as Organic Assam, Chai & Rooibos Afrikana but also includes some new additions such as Ginger Peach & Peppermint. We even got some special requests which we're glad to fill. We got a note of thanks from them, "Because of local businesses like Silver Tips, Tarrytown Nursery School is able to continue to provide an exceptional nursery school experience". We're glad to help!
