We need Bakers:
Please email: Jessica Jacklin: email@example.com to let us know if you can donate baked goods. Drop off Bake Sale and Bark Sale items: Tuesday, May 29 8:30a.m.-5:00p.m. Wednesday, May 30 8:30a.m.-8:00p.m. Thursday, May 31 8:30a.m.-5:00p.m. Bake Sale Info (for people): Since the rummage begins in the morning and goes all day, we’d like to have a variety of goods including both breakfast items (muffins, scones, coffee cake, etc.) and more dessert-type goods (cookies, pies, bars, small breads, etc.). Please keep in mind that the bake sale is during a potentially very warm time of the year, so things with a lot of soft frosting (like cupcakes) sometimes do not hold up as well as they might otherwise. We are looking for 3-5 dozen treats per baker, or whatever you can contribute. We’ve found in the last few years that the items that sell the best are bars, whole pies/cakes or breads (like banana or zucchini breads), coffee cakes, rice krispies treats, and cookies. We are going to cut bars, coffee cakes, etc., and package them in small portions, so if you are baking something that needs to be cut, please leave it whole, and we will cut it for you! Please label what you’ve made and drop off your bakery in disposable containers that seal well (to maintain freshness) at the shelter on the dates listed above. Bark Sale Info (for pets): We had a great variety of dog and cat treats last year that sold very well. If you would like, you can package your treats in smaller portions or just bring in single bones or similar treats, and we will display and sell them individually. If you have an idea of what price point you think would be fair, please indicate that as well, and we will try to get as close as possible. The most frequently asked questions shoppers had were whether or not the treats needed to be refrigerated and what the ingredients were (in case of food allergies or sensitivities). If you are able to make treats that DO NOT require refrigeration, that is best. This can be a very warm time of year, and we do not want to have to throw treats away because they were not able to be refrigerated and went bad. Keeping these things in mind, when you bring in pet treats, please provide an ingredient list and, if possible, an idea of their shelf life/refrigeration needs so we can refer to it if needed and properly inform our shoppers. Drop off your yummy pet treats at the shelter on the dates listed above.
