Our Impact

Why Not A Pear is committed to supporting organizations, educational institutions and individual families in need. Our team works to identify opportunities to provide funds and volunteer hours wherever we can have the most direct, positive impact. Each year, we choose an organization to receive the majority of our financial support. We also continue to support local schools, camps and programs — as well as individuals who are in need. Your contributions and support allow us to continue to help others.
