On Saturday, Aug. 1, Mademoiselle Patisserie in Patchogue will donate 100 percent of their profits to organizations dealing with mental health awareness. The promise comes after an incident that prompted an eagerness to help.
“An individual who seemed to have mental health issues came into the patisserie and was reaching out for help,” owner Michelle Gillette Kelly said in a video posted to Facebook Monday. “The very brave young women that were here handled the situation impeccably, and the men and women of the 5th Precinct were here in minutes, and the individual was removed from the situation and he received the help that he needed.”
A spokesperson for SCPD confirmed there was a police response, and that it was an aided case.
“There was a situation here that could have went in one direction and completely went in the positive direction,” Kelly said, thanking her staff and the officers for their work.
Kelly continued that the event opened her eyes to the many people who need help every day in their different struggles. And she wanted to do something as an individual to help those people. She decided that she could use her business to do some good. So, on Saturday, Kelly will donate 100 percent of the day’s profits to a mental health organization.
“At least, maybe I could even help one person realize that there is help out there... and bring awareness to health issues we face today,” she said in her video.
