Candy maker donating Easter candy to local hospital employees, physicians

Thursday, April 16, 2020 by LOU WHEELAND Special to The Press in Local News

If you were the owner of South Whitehall Township’s very popular Josh Early Candies, what would you do with all the Easter chocolates you made for the upcoming holiday, but could not sell due to the coronavirus sweeping the country?

How about donate it all to the employees and physicians working at the Lehigh Valley Health Network and St. Luke’s University Health Network? That’s exactly what Barry Dobil Sr., current owner of the family run business is doing.

With the full support of his family, who are all involved in the day- to-day operation of the business, Dobil will be donating all their Easter chocolates to the health care facilities serving the Lehigh Valley and beyond.
