We at Sarris Candies are tremendously appreciative of the success we have had in our community and surrounding area. We have always made a priority of giving generously to many worthy causes.

We receive numerous charitable requests daily, and while it would be impossible for us to fulfill all the requests we receive, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to support as many as possible.

Additionally, over 3,000 groups and organizations that utilize a Sarris Candies fundraising program also request donations, to which Sarris Candies is first and foremost, obliged to reciprocate our support. Sarris Candies contributes over one million dollars per year to those that qualify for our criteria for giving. We review each request on an individual basis and take our gifting seriously.

The partial list below represents some of the diverse causes and fundraisers to which we contribute annually:

  • The Frank Sarris Public Library in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania
  • The Frank Sarris Outpatient Transplant Clinic at UPMC
  • The Frank Sarris Orchid Room at Phipps Conservatory
  • University of Pittsburgh Chair Thomas Starzl Institute
  • Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh
  • National Kidney Foundation
  • Pittsburgh Cultural Trust
  • National MS Society

It is our intention that through these diverse charities, we will be able to support the friends and families of all the gracious patrons and customers who not only visit Sarris Candies, but support our business nationwide.
