In 2015, Sweet Candy Café founded the Annual Tim's Toys Project in loving memory of store co-founder, Tim Long, who unexpected passed away in 2014. “I can’t think of a better way to honor my husband by giving back to the community during this holiday season,” says Evans Long.
Each year, the store 'adopts' two families in need: one from Tim's hometown of Newark, New Jersey, and one from store location Lumberton, North Carolina. During the holiday season Sweet Candy Café collects toys and other festive items from the community and generous vendors to provide a basket of sweet treats to each family.
Donations are accepted and can be mailed to the store at 212 North Chestnut Street, Lumberton, North Carolina 28358.
