I live a couple blocks down from Daves Avenue Elementary School. Each morning, many students and teachers walk by my house on their way to school. In 2012, I opened up a pop up bakery in my front yard. I sold baked goods and hot drinks one day every month, and gave half of the profits to Daves Avenue. Over the course of several years, I donated thousands of dollars, first to help buy iPads for the school's technology department, then to fund the purchase of books for the library.
Some of the products I sold were Oreo balls, muffins (courtesy of Cherryville Farms), cherry pistacio biscotti, scones, and cookies. I also had hot chocolate for the children and coffee, donated by Starbucks, for the adults. Occasionally, I had special items on the menu, such as pumpkin shaped Oreo balls for October or free candy canes in December.
