Give: Birthday Bake Sale
For more than 26 years, Chuck Piekarski (a.k.a Chuck "The Baker") has been baking and personalizing a cake for every God's Love client, child and senior caregiver on our home-delivered meal program on their birthday. Today, having grown to serve thousands of clients annually, this has become quite a project but one that Chuck insists on doing. We're grateful he does and we know our clients are, too!
What does it take to make thousands of birthday cakes every year?
- Eggs, flour, butter and other natural ingredients (we always bake from scratch)
- A personalized message on the frosting for each client
- Lots of love from Chuck the Baker
- Careful packing for each delivery by staff and volunteers
- One big smile from our delivery driver
With each person who joins the God’s Love Birthday Bake Sale and sponsors a cake for $10 each, we will make sure that thousands of New Yorkers living with serious illnesses don’t feel alone on their birthday. For many of the clients of God’s Love, this is the only present they will receive on their birthday.
People can sponsor birthday cakes all year long! Join God's Love in remembering the birthdays of so many people in the community who would otherwise be forgotten.
Thank you for helping to fund Chuck's wonderful work. Please watch a birthday thank you video from our client, Agnes.
