For the entire month of June (Caribbean American Heritage Month), 100% of proceeds from sale of their “Krust” product at 125th Street location in Harlem and all 125 locations will benefit Golden Krust Bakery’s Scholarship program.
They have created over 100 scholarships to date, and set a goal of 70 this year alone.
