Burns & McBride is proud to support Waggies by Maggie & Friends – a Delaware company that employs persons who have intellectual disabilities.
Burns & McBride and Waggies by Maggie & Friends have partnered to distribute more than 130,000 dog biscuits to Burns & McBride customers as a special thank you for their loyalty and patronage.
Because of Burns & McBride’s large order, Waggies by Maggie & Friends has expanded its team, and now employs eight part-time bakers, four days a week. All dog biscuit sales benefit Waggies by Maggie & Friends employees, who need guidance and support as they navigate the work world.
The company relies heavily on community support from volunteers to empower the Waggies team and help them perfect the skills they need to make and package a quality product.

The voices of some of our volunteers:
“The bakers at Waggies by Maggie & Friends are special people. They are so excited to be at work, and they do such a great job! When I volunteer at Waggies, it makes me happy to be part of their work. Helping the community is valued at Burns & McBride, and my work at Waggies is valued and appreciated.”
“Baking dog treats has nothing to do with heating oil, but it warms my heart! I volunteer at Waggies by Maggie & Friends every month. Many of my customers have dogs, so I know that the treats we enclose in the meter bills are going to be appreciated.”
Thanks, Maggie and Friends!
