There’s a Beavercreek bakery that believes they can help change the world, one cupcake at a time. For the last year and a half, owners Shannon Teague and Connie McFarren have been serving up sweets with a commitment to also serve the community. Cake, Hope & Love’s name is straight from The Bible- Corinthians 13:13: “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” Each month the shop picks a different charity to partner with and donates 20% of their profits to a community partner. Some of their past recipients include American Red Cross, Hospice of Dayton, Hope Foundation of Greater Dayton, Dominion Academy of Dayton, AFP and A Special Wish.
For the month of October they’ve chosen the AIDS Resource Center Ohio. For each Red Velvet
Cupcake purchased this month Cake Hope & Love will donate to help fund the education and prevention efforts of ARC Ohio. “Connie and I both made the decision when we signed papers (for the new shop) back in January that we wanted to make sure that we were giving back as much as we got,” Teague said. “Changing the world one cupcake at a time,” Teague said. “That really seems to sum up what we do, just trying to change the world with what we have.”
