Senior center hosts No-bake Bake Sale
March 28, 2013 — Lassen Senior Services has come up with a new idea to raise funds to supplement its daily hot lunch and Meals on Wheels programs — a No-bake Bake Sale. While the center requests a donation for lunches served, no eligible participant is denied a meal because of a failure or inability to contribute financially.
If you’ve never heard of a No-bake Bake Sale, you may need an explanation. Basically, instead of organizing a bake sale, which takes time, money and numerous volunteers, Lassen Senior Services is asking the community to donate the amount of money they’d normally pay for a pie, cake or plate of cookies at a bake sale fundraiser.
“In the last fiscal year, we served 25,705 meals to seniors,” said Lassen Senior Services Executive Director Penny Artz. “That’s including Meals on Wheels and all three locations (Doyle, Westwood and Susanville).”
