The Grand Total of the GABS Summer 2009

Kelsey and I have had a lot of bake sales this summer.  We made a lot of chocolate chip cookies, cup cakes, banana bread, and so much more!  We want to thank everyone who made our bake sales possible because we had a team of over 20 bakers who baked a difference for the entire summer.  It was a community effort to come together and raise money for SOS AND the NH Food Bank in a huge time of need.  We partnered with 4 local businesses Sweet Dreams Bakery, Saint Anthony's Bakery, Shaws, and Sams Club.  With out the support of local businesses we wouldn't have been as successful as we were.  It was helpful for the bakeries to donate treats for us to sell and it was helpful for the corporations to donate gift cards so we could buy baking items!  It really was a team effort and we all raised over $600 together to help feed people in our state and across America.  We went 50/50 and donated half to SOS and half to the NH Food Bank.  It was a successful summer and we all had fun.  
Thank You - Great American Bake Sale‏

Dear Alicia,

Thank you so much for participating in Great American Bake Sale. Congratulations to you and your team, Kelsey McDonald and Alicia Rossman's Bake Sale, for raising $320 and contributing to more than $1.2 million raised this year so far! We appreciate your team’s efforts in helping end childhood hunger. More than 12 million American children are at risk of hunger, but your efforts will help ensure that they get the nutritious food they need to learn, grow and thrive.

Thank you again for your support and we hope you’ll join us for another great bake sale next year.
