Every Thanksgiving season a team of interested kids get together with all the ingredients needed to make incredibly delicious (nut free) pumpkin bread. They were beautifully presented in a loaf pan with a big holiday ribbon around each one and sold for $10 each raising over $2,200 so far. They can be frozen for all occasions and are great for hostess gifts. Kids this year made over 380 loaves, sold many of them and donated others to local shelters. 100% of the proceeds will be used to redo a playground designed by youth at a local homeless shelter. A big thank you to Lisa O’Gorman, Head of SLS cafeteria, who let us use her kitchen to make and bake the bread!
Pumpkin bread ingredients: pumpkin, egg, flour, salt, pumpkin spice, baking power, sugar, and vegetable oil.
We raised $1100 and this money will be used to help support a literacy program in Norwalk. We could not have done this without the help of the head chef at St. Luke’s School, in New Canaan who helped us with the entire mixing and baking of these breads into the night on Friday!
Over 15 KHK members got together to mix, measure and bake all these breads. The breads then were sold by the team in New Canaan, Stamford and Ridgefield.
Thanksgiving Bread Drive 2009
A big thank you to all of the friends and neighbors that bought our Thanksgiving pumpkin bread this year. We raised $1500 and this money will be used to help build a well in South Sudan so that the girls can go to school instead of walking 6 hours a day to get water. We could not have done this without the help of Steve, the head chef at St. Lukes School, in New Canaan who helped us with the entire mixing and baking of these breads all day Saturday! All money will be combined with the funds we raise at our Work out for Wells project and be sent to Hope for Ariang.
