Bread Day Is Coming!!!!!
 
 
 
Thanks to the hard work of the dedicated members of our club, we were able to sign up 200 young individuals to the Shandle Family Be The Match program this year. This means that those individuals that suffer from blood born diseases will have a much better chance for a longer life.    It is estimated that over 50 people have had their lives extended by matches found through the Shandle Family Be The Match Program.
 
Now we face the fiscal portion of the project:  Raising the dollars to pay for the testing of those new donors.
 
Members of our club will be pre-selling bread, cookies and granola until September 7th, then baking the bread and cookies at the Great Harvest Bread Company on September 16th and 17th. We will deliver the bread on Monday September 18th. None of this would be possible without the generosity of the Lariccia family.   The Mentor Rotary Club could not conduct this fundraiser without the support and generosity of the Lariccia family.  They literally open the doors of their family business to us each year to help raise the money for donor testing. Kudos and thanks to Fred and his entire family!
 
There is a link to the Bread Day order form just to the left so that you can download and print it.  This year there are two significant changes from last year.

 

  1. For those who don’t eat bread, we have included a 1 lb. bag of Groovy Granola as an alternative choice. Made with cranberries and walnuts sweetened with molasses, good for a healthy snack with yogurt or by the handful.
  2. We have discontinued the 5 loaf gift certificate but not the discount. If you purchase five 1 loaf gift certificates the price will be discounted to $45, making it possible for the buyers to give individual gifts to five different people.
As we get closer to September, a signup sheet will be passed for members to come to the Great Harvest Bread Company to knead the bread, package the bread and deliver the bread. But of course we first need to pre-sell the bread.
