Our Bake Sale raised just over $1,200, bringing overall funds raised to date to more than $12,000.
On behalf of Bake Sale organizer Raihana Ingar and the entire Wilkinson Community Refugee Sponsorship group, thank you to everyone who supported the sale. Whether you sent baked goods, volunteered, or sent an email of support, without you, the bake sale would not have been as successful.
The Wilkinson community was well represented by the volunteers that included members of our refugee sponsorship group, parents, council members, and staff. Together, we made a great team!
It was particularly nice to see parents and kids bringing in goodies in such abundance and variety that the volunteer crew had to keep adding tables!
Many of the children refused to take their change back, saying: “I don’t want my change, you can use it for sponsoring the refugees”.
The excitement, happiness, and support from our next generation was possibly the sweetest part of our success.
