Thanksgiving Bread Drive 2011 Our youth were able to design a playground at the local homeless shelter, Inspirica, by raising $2200. A big thank you to Lisa O’Gorman, Head of SLS cafeteria, who let us use her kitchen to make and bake the bread!
Thanksgiving Bread Drive 2010 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.
