Howdy Homemade, is known for its original, delicious flavors, but also its public service mission. All of its employees are individuals with special needs. When the pandemic hit, Howdy Homemade was severely affected, closing temporarily to keep their employees safe. Even after reopening, customer traffic was slow. The community rallied together to organized a GoFundMe campaign that raised over $100,000 for the shop and brought it more attention than ever.
