Cupcakes are now for a cause. Cupcakes with a Heart, an organization started this summer by Yalies Alyssa Bilinski ’13 and Stacey Chen ’13, donates proceeds from cupcake sales to charity. The group’s first charity partner is New Haven Reads, an organization that promotes literacy in the New Haven community.

“Our short term goals are to have a strong campus presence and to possibly cater events,” Bilinski said, adding that they also hope to raise awareness for their partner organizations. They plan to work with other New Haven and Dwight Hall charities and potentially national groups as well.

Topped with a generous amount of frosting animals, letters, and hearts, their made-from-scratch cupcakes will make their way to the Calhoun College buttery Tuesday night, where hungry students can purchase a study break snack.
