We are still looking for counter person 3 days a week (12.5 hrs)

We are still looking for someone to work Thursdays and Fridays 11-3 and Sat 1-5:30. Primary responsibility is to wait on customers. But there will definitely be some opportunity to learn gluten free baking when it is slow, including assisting bakers by “mising” ingredients, scooping and baking cookies, frosting cupcakes and the like.

Must be congenial, with a good memory for details. Life experience and being gluten free both big plusses!

Pay is $12hr + % of shared house tips. Send resume or cover letter of relevant experience to cupcakes@violettegf.com. We are looking for someone who will commit to staying at the job, not just a temporary worker. Thanks!

Change of hours for the next few weeks

We will be open at 11:30 on Weds and Thursday for the next several weeks while we get fully staffed again. Thanks for understanding!

Also, we are looking for a counter person. Hours are Tuesday 12-3, Wed-Friday 11-3, and sat 9-1. Should have some counter experience (bakery, cafe, restaurant). Bonus if you are gluten free. I am interviewing this week so send your resume ASAP to cupcakes@violettegf.com with brief cover letter about why you would be good for the position. Will have some opportunity to learn some basic baking.

Thank you!

Holiday Joy = Giving to a local Homeless child

We are sponsoring Holiday Gift Giving for 5 Single-Mom Homeless families in a local shelter. Starting this week, our “refugee” tip jar will be a collection jar for these 5 homeless families. We will use the tip jar money to purchase items that are not donated. Please consider sponsoring one  or more of  these children or families for Holiday Gift Giving. I have put together an Amazon Wish List for home items and a few toys to make it easy for you–but feel free to buy any wish list item yourself. There are many requests for Gift Cards.  If you can’t make it into the bakery, you can donate HERE  to my charity and specify which child or gift the donation is for. We will deliver a box of bakery treats for each family, along with their wrapped presents (we can wrap for you) on Christmas Eve! If you want to help with this project — collecting, keeping track, wrapping or delivery, please let me know!

These are all families who hope to have their own home one day. We are working with Cross Street Shelter (a single women family shelter) where a previous employee has volunteered at for the past 2 years. Trust me, JOY comes from giving generously to others in need!
