A NOTE ABOUT DONATIONS:
This form has been specifically created to address donation needs at the following stores: Piqua, Troy, Sidney, Dublin (Columbus) and Wapakoneta. If you place a donation request using this form, it is expected that you will pickup your donation from one of these stores. For donation requests at any of our other stores (including Springfield, Dayton or Columbus) please reach out to the local manager of that location.
TO OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS:
Thank you for thinking of Winans Chocolates and Coffees with your donation request. We are proud community supporters! Since Winans products are perfect for fundraisers (and because we have locations in several communities) we receive MANY more requests than we are able to fulfill. Please don’t be upset or hurt if we cannot meet your donation needs. We are a small, family owned business that gets hundreds of requests and unfortunately, we cannot give to everyone.
Our management team tries very hard to review all donation requests in a timely manner. At the beginning of each month, we review all the requests we have received throughout the previous month and make decisions on what we are able to give. If that does not work for the timeframe of your event, we are sorry but we suggest you make your request earlier next year. This process has been put in place to help our small staff deal appropriately and efficiently with the large number of donation requests received.
Our donation focus is on community non-profits and organizations that help local families in need throughout the areas where our stores are located. For that reason, it is not our standard practice to donate to individual fundraisers that are raising funds for a national organization. Winans already supports several national organizations which we contribute to annually. We also do not donate to religious organizations or sports teams at this time. Our employees belong to numerous churches and athletic programs so it is our hope that they will continue to support these organizations through their time and personal resources.
