We believe that being an active member of the community is an essential part of a thriving business. We would not be here if it weren’t for the support from our neighbors, and we want to impact our neighborhood in the most positive way we believe we can.

With that in mind, we believe we can provide the most impact by giving all of our charitable resources to one organization a year.  There are so many worthy organizations that are doing really important things and although we would love to be able to give to them all, we simply cannot.

Every year we will select a charity or organization whose mission is to provide food to those in need and help end hunger in our community. This year, we are committed to working with Merrick Community Services. If you are also interested in working with this organization or would like to understand their mission please visit

If you are requesting a donation from The Buttered Tin please send the request to and we would be happy to consider your organization for the following year.
