Success at the MFA!

As I had mentioned in an earlier post...
The instructors and recruit class 187 of the Massachusetts Fire Academy in Stow, MA have joined our fight to end child hunger in America. This was only possible because of the involvement of the fabulous people at Jake's, the food service providers at the academy!
Jake's very generously offered to display our baked goods and signs in their shop, selling and collecting money brought in by the employees and recruits.
Over the course of a week we raised $115.00!
As if their (Jake's) assistance wasn't enough, they offered to donate the money from their desserts sold the final week of the session!
I am proud to announce they raised an additional $126.00 this final week!!
It is wonderful to have such great people stand behind such a great cause!
With their help our total raised is now just under $1700.00

Thanks To The MFA, Recruit Class 187 & Erin (from Jake's)

As many of you may already know, my husband Fred is attending The Massachusetts Firefighter Academy in Stow, MA.
As part of Team Cookie Central, Fred agreed to ask Erin from Jake's (the food services for the academy) if she would be interested in helping to sell baked product to end child hunger. Erin was not only willing, but has gone above and beyond letting me send down cookies and brownies on multiple occasions.
The instructors at the MFA and Recruit Class 187 have been extremely receptive to our cause, many donating a little more than asked or even without purchasing at all! All of us involved are incredibly excited to see the results and I will post as soon as we have a definite number!
