Social Ministry is offering a new kind of fundraiser this year to help support SafeHome ministry for the abused. We have done pot pie dinners and soup sales but this year we are offering you this poem to explain it:
A bit of news we have today…
A BAKELESS BAKE SALE is on the way.
In these busy days, who wants to bake,
A pie, or cookies or even a cake.
So we’ve thought of a plan that’s truly grand,
And feel quite sure that you’ll understand.
And so, we are asking you to help more or less
To make our BAKELESS BAKE SALE a big success.
You’d be surprised if you counted the cost,
Of ingredients, heat, and the time you’ve lost.
Baking for sales is extra work.
Yet nobody really wants to shirk.
So set aside the money that it would take
To bake a loaf of bread or a beautiful cake.
In an envelope, if you like, please include the price…
Of a pie, or brownies or anything nice.
Now without fuss or bother, you’ve done your part.
We hope you’ll give with a willing heart.
Wishing success for our BAKELESS BAKE SALE, so help if you’re able
Just put your donations into the box on the narthex table.
