SoBol, a cafe franchise specializing in acai bowls, green bowls, fruit smoothies and more, has launched a new initiative to donate bowls to frontline healthcare workers using proceeds from the sales of their SoBol branded socks.
For the past several weeks, SoBol has been giving back to the Long Island community through food donations to local hospitals, donating more than 500 meals directly to Huntington Hospital and Stony Brook University Hospital. The brand has also partnered with Carroll's Kitchen, a nonprofit corporation that has donated over 2,000 meals to the Long Island community in order to contribute to their donations.
“We are in a fortunate position to be able to give back to the community that has always been so supportive of us,” says SoBol founder and CEO, Jason Mazzarone. “It has been wonderful to see our team come together during this trying time to prioritize what matters most and we know that we’ll get through this together, stronger than ever before.”
The brand’s socks, which can be found on their website, can be purchased for $15. Proceeds will go directly to a bowl donation to frontline workers, including doctors and nurses at local hospitals. Additionally, customers are also able to donate 10, 20 or 40 acai bowls directly to frontline workers in the Long Island area from the SoBol website.
