What is a “No Bake / Bake Sale”?

Typically LWGP asks for donations of baked goods in early May.  Since we no longer have an LWGP representative as a coordinator, there will not be a bake sale.  In lieu of pies, brownies, cookies and small breads, we are requesting a donation towards Lutheran Hillside Village’s Benevolent Fund.  With the support of monetary donations, LHV is able to cover the shortfall between the resources of residents and the cost of quality care.  The Benevolent Fund provides for the needs of those who have outlived their resources and LWGP regularly raises money for this worthy cause.  Be kind to one another, tenderhearted...Ephesians 4:32 

Checks made payable to:  LWGP, memo line Benevolent Fund c/o Arlene Rush, PO Box 202, Metamora, IL  61548    Thank you!
