“Our children often will receive a tote bag from our CASA volunteer when they are newly placed in a foster or kinship home. This is an amazing way for the child to bond in their new situation and with the adult who is caring for them. Our children have been through such trauma, to enjoy cooking, in a safe home, can create the trust and positive experiences that we encourage and work for.”
“Our families love the extra kitchen supplies that come with the bag and it makes them so happy to be able to make a fresh batch of cookies when they move into their new unit.”
“The Bake Me Home Tote Bags are a beautiful, family-building gift to the families that leave our shelter. The children are always so excited at the prospect of baking with mom once they reach their new home. One semblance of normalcy in the midst of upheaval and uncertainty.”
“I received your generous donation of gift cards and the receipt is in the mail. I wish you could see how surprised and happy the recipients will be. God bless you all!”
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for your thoughtful gift- I have a child that loves to bake and this gift was like Christmas morning.”
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.
“I’m going through a divorce and my kids and I have been struggling. We received this at a food pantry, thank you so much. It was just what we needed to do together, bake. Thank you, Emma and Amy.”
“I want to thank you- after I broke my back we never have money to buy extra stuff like cookies to make together and we had a blast!!! Thank you! Plus they tasted great!!!”
Bake Me Back Home
The girls advertised on Military groups to nominate a Deployed Military member to receive cookies. My partner was one of the lucky ones to be chosen. He received his cookies within 3 weeks and loved them! They made someone smile an extra smile in a harsh environment. Thank you so much. You are an inspiration to us all.
I wanted to say thank you so much for the wonderful batch of cookies I received and the popcorn! It was my favorite kind – oatmeal chocolate chip. I think you girls are so thoughtful and wonderful for doing what you do. I was able to pass the love forward to 4 more soldiers… I ate some, then I bagged up the rest and handed them out. Everyone was so pleasantly surprised. Again, thanks so much and keep up the hard work. We really appreciate it!
The cookies taste fresh baked, just like Mom’s! People came running when I opened the box, they smelled so good!
I can’t tell you how surprised and pleased I was to receive your package of “test” cookies, and read your note with the description of your thoughtful mission to support Moms and Kids, AND service members overseas. How wonderful. Many thanks for what you are doing. I think it is a wonderful idea. We all very much appreciate your support and kindness. Just reading your letter makes home feel much closer, and makes the long days here away from family much easier.
