Tote Bags: Our families, who are successfully housed receive a bag. They look forward to the receipt of the bag. Especially the children. They never let me forget to hand the Tote Bags out!!


Bake Me Home Family

Dear Amy and Emma,

I wanted to thank you so very much for what you are doing for families like mine. Receiving our Bake Me Home kit was such a nice surprise for myself and my son. May you continue to touch the hearts of many, giving them a beautiful treat and a restored sense of hope. We truly appreciate you!

Much love, Melissa and Gabriel.

“Our families really enjoy receiving the tote bags. They also love the cookbook. It is so awesome for them to receive the Kroger gift card to buy the ingredients. Many of the women also reuse the tote bags. They bring it back empty to use for the groceries they receive at our food pantry. We are blessed by your program. Thanks so much!”

“It allows families to bond when moving into their new homes. The recipe book also gives families a way to start their own dinner traditions/baking traditions.”

Tote Bag Recipient

THANK YOU My daughter is big into baking. When she looked inside that bag she was like a young child on Christmas morning. She had to examine each piece like she was planning something yummy. 
Thank you that meant a lot to us.

Amy, Emma, Mom, and all of the Bake Me Home Volunteers,

My name is Greg and I’m currently deployed with the Air Force’s 492d Fighter Squadron. One of my buddies here reached out to y’all and we recently received several packages of your cookies (I’d say about the 12th of June). They reached us in good condition, but unfortunately I have no photos to attach as they were gone about as soon as we opened them up! I’ll try my best to actually get a good photo if we get anymore from you. They were absolutely delicious, everyone was asking whose grandmother had been nice enough to send us all those homemade cookies! So from everyone here in the 492d ‘Madhatter’ family, I just wanted to extend a huge thanks to you guys. After long days of flying, those cookies helped keep everyone in good spirits by giving us a little taste of home.

You guys rock, and I hope you’re all doing well. Thank you again for doing what you’re doing!!

Thank you both so very much for all you do! The cookies were phenomenal! The cookies were a boost to our morale beyond belief. On behalf of everyone in HSM-72.1 “The Bad Omens” we are eternally grateful:)

“Thank you very much for the most delicious cookies! Our veterans loved them. We love your devotion to our veterans, and through them, our country.”

Major Chris Lewis

Got the cookies!! And they were almost gone in the first 48 hours. I think a few of the folks here substituted the cookies for dinner the first night that I had them.
