My goal is to use business for good, not evil.

Julius Walls, Jr.

President and CEO, Greyston Bakery

YouTube Treasures continues with an example of a business making a difference in people’s lives.

Greyston Bakery famously makes brownies, -the brownies that you find in Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.  They make those brownies while helping the community around them.

From the video description:

How good can one brownie be? Greyston Bakery’s brownies are delicious, sure, but they also help to alleviate poverty within the community of Yonkers. With a progressive, open-door hiring policy, Greyston welcomes people who may have faced barriers to employment before. The profits from the bakery are funneled back into the community, funding programs such as after school care, low income housing, and support for people living with HIV/AIDS.
