We’re so happy to share that our annual Thanksgiving Pie & Food Drive is back! On Tuesday, November 15th, your child(ren) will bring home a ziploc bag containing an aluminum pie tin and a simple apple pie recipe. Please bake (or buy) a pie and join our efforts to show Hausner Cares! This is a great way for family members to do a mitzvah together. You may use the provided recipe or one of your own. They will happily accept pumpkin pies as well.
This year we’ll also be collecting other food donations. Here are some specific items that have been requested:
- Canned tuna or salmon
- Canned soups/chili
- Canned fruit
- Instant coffee
Hausner will deliver these pies and food items to the Food Closet at All Saints Episcopal Church in Palo Alto, where they serve a Thanksgiving meal for families.
Bring your pie (wrapped in aluminum foil and stored in the plastic bag) and other food donations to Ring Road on Friday, November 18 (by 8:45 am). Volunteers will be waiting to collect items during morning drop-off.
Note: Store-bought pies are completely acceptable, we know you are busy. Either way, please be sure to wrap the pie in foil and insert it into a sealed ziploc bag.
If you’re able to volunteer to help collect items the morning of November 18, please sign up here.
Thank you for your participation and support for our Hausner Cares efforts with this mitzvah. It’s all as easy as pie!
