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!

    Hello,
    I was in your bakery earlierrtoday and we spoke about the donations of gifts for the homeless single mothers. I wanted you know that you will be getting two shipments from Amazon. We bought items for Family #4. On Monday December 4th you will get a 16 pc dinnerware set with 4 dinner plates, 4 dessert plates, 4 mugs and 4 bowls, 2 holiday Barbie Dolls and one Barbie playhouse.

    On December 5th you will get a second box with a second Barbie Playhouse and a Memory Game.

    I hope it helps!

    Thank you!
