Trekkers has formed a partnership with chocolate confectionery company Bixby & Co. Students will be selling Bixby confections through a new catalog fundraiser. For every item sold, students will receive a credit toward their annual dues.

Bixby & Co. is a family-owned and -operated company on the working waterfront of Rockland. Founded by Kate & Donna McAleer, a mother-daughter team, in late 2011, Bixby & Co. crafts organic and natural chocolate confectionery products. In 2017, Bixby & Co. became the first Bean to Bar, or craft chocolate, maker in Maine.

The public can purchase Bixby snack bars, drinking chocolate, caramels, chocolate bars, cacao nibs, puffin pops, snacking clusters, peanut butter bites and more, while supporting a Trekkers student. The items range in price from $1.99 to $30.

To purchase items for this fundraiser, speak to a Trekkers student or family member, or call the Trekkers office at 594-5095. All orders from the catalog must be submitted to the Trekkers office by Friday, Jan. 18. Students will be able to pick up their fulfilled orders starting Feb. 4. Catalogs are available at the Trekkers office, which is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, at 58 Park St., Suite 202, Rockland.
