Whisking up support

Claire O., Clubs Editor

The Business Honor Society gave back to the local community by promoting a small business, The Whisk Bakery, during the week of St. Patrick’s Day. 

“Our St. Patrick’s Day Courtesy Initiative was a lucky opportunity to put money back into our local economy and help a business earn revenue in a year where their cash flow may have decreased due to COVID-19 restrictions,” said Carolyn Milano, adviser of Business Honor Society.

Milano was thrilled to be able to coordinate help for businesses within our community this year along with BHS members.

“After receiving numerous price quotes, Whisk Bakery was the obvious choice. The owner, Amanda, was excited to help spread our message of gratitude, at a cost that was much lower than her direct competitors. Amanda employs several CHS students, including my BHS Treasurer, John Scoppio,” said Milano.

The Whisk Bakery provided BHS members and building staff with St. Patrick’s Day cookies in thanks for supporting their business during these difficult times, brought on by the pandemic.

“Amanda understood our concerns that the cookies needed to be wrapped individually to be COVID safe, and she even offered to print the labels with a positive message,” said Milano.

Each cookie, as shown in the picture, was individually wrapped with the message, “Business Honor Society is LUCKY to have you at Commack High School!”

 “For an incredibly labor-intensive job, she still gave us the best price, a promotion, and delicious cookies,” said Milano

Additionally, Amanda held a fundraiser to help support the Future Business Leaders of America club. Their partnership proved to be positive! The Whick Bakery is located at 975 W Jericho Turnpike, Smithtown and is open from 7 am to 9 pm every day except Mondays.🔳
