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).”
Artz said the funds raised by the No-bake Bake Sale go directly to feeding seniors in Lassen County. And since Lassen Senior Services is a 501(c)3 organization, Artz said all donations are tax deductible.
“Aside from the social interaction the seniors get from the program,” said Artz, “some of the low income people would and could not feed themselves.”
The center requests donations be mailed or delivered to its office at 1700 Sunkist Drive, Susanville (behind Riverside Park).
For more information about donating and volunteering, call Lassen Senior Services at 257-2113, or stop by for lunch.
