Contributing to our local communities is an integral part of the culture of Stonewall Kitchen. We would not be here today if it were not for the support we received from that first farmers' market community in Portsmouth, NH. We value the town of York, Maine, where our headquarters are located, and the surrounding seacoast area, which has been supportive of our business from the start. We also strive to be part of the community in the ten other east coast towns where our retail stores are located.
Our charitable giving generally focuses on serving the needs of our local communities; Our mission includes but is not limited to helping charitable organizations that focus on: food insecurities, children with life-threatening illnesses, the education and prevention of the AIDS virus, as well as environmental commitments.
We also designate a percentage of our annual sales to support charitable organizations that fit our mission through finance grants to help promote awareness and support them in their efforts of their worthy causes. The NH Food Bank, Camp Sunshine, The Animal Welfare Society, The Table of Plenty, and the York Food Pantry, The Frannie Peabody Center, and AIDS Response Seacoast and have receive annual contributions from Stonewall Kitchen. Our commitment to the environment has been recognized in part with our donation to the York Land Trust.
Stonewall Kitchen is also pleased to contribute and participate, as a member of the York, Maine and Rochester, New Hampshire communities through some local programs. These range from contributing to the scholarship program for summer camp at York Parks and Recreation, sponsoring Rochester Youth Soccer, offering jobs to high school age children, job shadowing opportunities, hosting field trips and providing donations to local school's project graduations. In addition, a Stonewall Kitchen Scholarship is awarded in the amount of $2,000 each year to a senior from both York High School and Spaulding High School.
In Addition to our annual financial grants, monthly Stonewall Kitchen contributes a number of gifts to various charitable organizations within the communities of our home office and of our company stores. We substantially support three local food pantries with food donations and contribute to the local Fire and Ambulance departments. Annually, we host a staff-run Charity Pancake Breakfast at our York facility and donate 100% of the proceeds to local non-profit organizations.
