Parishioners Donate Generously to the Rest Stop Project
The call went out and was answered overwhelmingly! Small Fundraising requested donations of cookies and baked goods for their fundraising project - The Rest Stop on Interstate 90. Parishioners donated all sorts of baked goods. Some donations even came from people outside of the parish, and an especially generous donation was provided by Yoke's Foods in Deer Park.
Eight volunteers manned the rest stop booth: two groups of four taking five-hour shifts. Reports have it that there was much laughter and camaraderie. There was also much gratitude expressed by those who stopped for a hot cup of coffee, a baked goodie and someone to talk to.
The outpouring of support for this project was amazing.
All the donations barely fit into the vehicles!
Beautiful signs let people know who we were and where we were from.
Greg Yochum made special cookies for our endeavor.
Small Fundraising has secured the date of June 18 for its next Rest Stop project.
