Bake Day Thursdays at my place of work
I read with interest the idea of baking to make a change. For well over a decade, my employer - McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd., Surrey Branch - has had Bake Day Thursdays. Two of our volunteer to bring in goodies, home baked or purchase (but mostly home baked is what we get). The goodies are put out and sold to our employees at 50 cents a serving. Given that we have approximately 100 employees in the Surrey Branch, this mounts up! Last year, for example, we made some $3,500 over the year, which was matched dollar for dollar by McElhanney's management. The resulting pot of money was split between giving two families an excellent Christmas through Surrey's Christmas Bureau, a local women's shelter, the SPCA. This kind of effort really works!
