Simply Divine is just about the cutest, most perfect, quaint little candy shop in downtown Cedar Rapids. Nestled into the corner of 3rd Avenue and 2nd Street, right next door to the Paramount Theatre, they stock a big selection of premium chocolates, nostalgic sweets, novelties and an impressive variety of candy classics.

This Saturday the Simply Divine Candy Shop is hosting its Charity Day and proceeds will benefit Bridge Under the Bridge.

The volunteers at Bridge Under the Bridge are on a mission to provide food to anyone in need. They're a dedicated group with love and meals to share. Described on their Facebook page as a "Cedar Rapids organization providing hundreds of hot meals to the community daily" is modesty at its best. These folks are HEROES to those they serve.

On Saturday, December 12th, Simply Divine Candy will give 30% of all net sales to Bridge Under the Bridge. You can order online and stop by for curbside pickup.

Simply Divine customers can also participate by purchasing items to fill a Christmas Stocking for a child on the giving wish list. 30% of those purchases also benefits Bridge Under The Bridge.

Candy is always a perfect gift for the holidays, and one that can evoke more emotion than some might realize. The rush of nostalgia you get from opening a box of Milk Duds is similar to the feeling your kids get opening a package of Laffy Taffy. We're all kids at heart.

Candy has it's generational favorites and it also has its classics, confections like Turtles, rich chocolate cremes and truffles. You can be sure of many happy responses to a gift that gives twice by shopping at Simply Divine this Saturday Dec. 12 from 11am to 5pm.
