On Saturday, we held a Toy Store for some of our families, who have jobs (although are “underemployed”), to purchase new toys at greatly discounted prices. The “Bake Me Home” girls (8 year old twin girls and their mom) brought an extra touch of joy with their tote bags filled with all of the ingredients and supplies to make homemade cookies—and even the toothbrushes and toothpaste for after eating the cookies!
I was made aware of their nonprofit organization on a Wednesday at an event mom, Alison, and I attended. She was sure they could provide the tote bags for our Toy Store on Saturday, 3 days later—and with the help of 20 volunteers, they assembled 36 bags and delivered them to us. It was remarkable to see these little girls proudly carrying bag after bag and to realize what they accomplished on such short notice. The families who received the tote bags were thrilled!
