#makeadifferencemonday! Kids Helping Kids (KHK) members are ready to go back into the kitchen for the 10th season of Thanksgiving bread baking. Last year, KHK baked and sold over 3,000 pumpkin breads and through donations were able to hand deliver several hundred breads to people in need for Thanksgiving.
This year, they once again hope to outdo themselves by selling their beautifully presented nut-free pumpkin breads at $10 a loaf. All profits will go to fund future Kids Helping Kids projects.
Kids Helping Kids members will bake, package and sell the breads—a collaboration with over 80 volunteers. The volunteers consist of middle and high school students from over 25 different schools. “I’ve participated in six bread bakes and it is my favorite KHK project,” says Jordan Benzaken, a senior at Westhill High. “We all have so much fun baking the hundreds and hundreds of loaves of bread and packaging them all in one crazy night. For me the annual bake represents the beginning of the holiday season and a chance to give something special to my community. The bread bake is also KHK’s biggest fundraising event so its success is very important to us.”
Kids Helping Kids volunteers will be selling to friends and family, but breads will also be available for purchase at these local destinations:
Thursday 11/15 at ShopRite: 1990 West Main, Stamford
Friday 11/16 at our office: 110 Lenox Avenue, Stamford
All orders for Pumpkin Bread must be placed online prior to pick-up on Thursday, November 15th for purchase or for donation to a family in need by visiting the KHK website: http://www.kidshelpingkidsct.org/thanksgiving-bread-drive/.
