Charitable giving is something that Yella has been committed to since the day we opened.  Thank you to all of our loyal customers for helping us build a business that has the opportunity to give back.  Because of your support we are able to pay it forward to those in need.   Having a small business that gives back to the community to make it a better place is of the utmost importance to us and we are so grateful to be able to work with the following inspiring and amazing organizations and professionals.

Lazarus House
The Lazarus House is one of those organizations that makes you just want to do more.  Through their provision of emergency shelter, transitional housing, food pantries &work preparation opportunities, the Lazarus House helps thousands of poor, underserved and homeless individuals & families on a daily basis. Yella lends support to the Lazarus house with charitable menu offerings, job placement opportunities, meal donations and support of Project Bethlehem which affords deserving families a bountiful Christmas full of gifts, food and cheer.

Transitional Opportunities Program
One of our favorite and most rewarding opportunities is with the TOPs program. For young individuals with special needs looking to gain workplace experience, Yella provides dedicated mentoring opportunities focusing on work skills training and one on one guidance. The perseverance, sincerity and enthusiasm of our students is truly inspiring.

Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer
Yella is honored to help end breast cancer one sweet at a time.  Through its dessert-oriented events, Boston Bakes is a grassroots organization committed to supporting breast cancer research & treatment.  Yella supports Boston Bakes each spring with the entire proceeds of a custom made dessert from our menu going directly to the organization.
