At the Crossroads is looking for enthusiastic bakers to bake delicious individually packed at home and bring them to At the Crossroads for their holiday parties, which take place on the evenings of Tues, December 18th and Thurs, December 20th. Baked goods need to be wrapped in individual servings, ideally in a ziploc bag, or saran wrap. So it could be one big cookie per bag, or a few small cookies, for example. It should not be cakes or pies or things that require cutting. Cookies, brownies, bars, cupcakes, muffins, and the like are great. They can use as much as you can make. Extras will get sent home with their clients in "doggie bags".
Bakers should bring the baked goods in to ATC's office any time on the following dates up to these cutoff times:
- 17th (by 7:15pm); 18th (by 5pm); 19th (by 7:15 pm); 20th (by 5pm)
Please indicate here what and approximately how much you plan to bring so Rob from at the Crossroads can know what to expect and plan accordingly.
Rest assured that your gift of baked goods will go a long way to making the holidays merry for the youth served by ATC, and to show there are people in the community who support and care about them. Their clients are young people who do not access traditional services and are disconnected from any type of consistent support, and who others have given up on, who would not otherwise get help. ATC removes common barriers to service by bringing counselors onto the streets, and shaping support services around the needs of each individual client. ATC's goal is to help their clients build outstanding lives, not just lives of subsistence.
Please note that the parties are for staff and clients only, and that your baked goods will be hugely appreciated by all.
