Hannah Meyer, of Kensington, a rising seventh-grader at North Bethesda Middle School, turned her Bat Mitzvah project into a fundraiser for the Noyes Children’s Library Foundation.
Hannah makes and sells chocolate owls, the symbol of Noyes Library, and donates the profits to the foundation.
She chose this project because she “loves molding chocolates, reading, little kids, and the Noyes Library,” she said in an email statement.
The chocolates are sold at the Kensington Row Bookshop, 3786 Howard Ave., in Kensington, on Fridays through Sundays, and at JennyCakes Bakery, 10419 Armory Ave., in Kensington, on Fridays and Saturdays during the month of July.
They are available in white and milk chocolate in two sizes. The suggested donation is 50 cents for small and $1 for large. All proceeds will benefit the Noyes Children's Library Foundation which provides funds for books, salaries and programs for the Noyes Children’s Library in Kensington.
The chocolates, molds and bags for Hannah’s project were donated by The Little Bitts Shop, a cake decorating and candy supplies store in Wheaton.
