Holiday tin benefits Camp New Hope
Published 12:00 am Friday, December 11, 2009
Apple Baking Co. has produced a collectible holiday tin containing a variety of its cake slices to help raise funds for Camp New Hope. The camp is a nonprofit, private camp free to families who have children with life-threatening illnesses.
The silver tins contain a selection of cakes made by the Apple Baking Co. and can be used for corporate gifts or other gifts this holiday season. Apple Baking Company donates $5 of the $20 retail price from each sale to the camp. If sales go well this year, Apple Baking plans to make the fundraiser a yearly event.
“The holiday tins are a great addition to our work for Camp New Hope,” said Matt DeBoer, president of Apple Baking Co. “This camp for children is so important. We completely support the camp’s mission for children to experience a new appreciation for nature and a renewed hope for the future.”
Camp New Hope is located on 160 acres in West Jefferson along the New River. Visiting families not only indulge in great views, but also have access to canoes, kayaks, tubes, volleyball, baseball, soccer, fishing rods and “the swimming hole.”
The holiday tin includes two slices of Cheerwine Cake, two slices of Lemon Creme Cake, two slices of Chocolate Creme Cake, one Pineapple Crush Mini Bundt Cake, one Vanilla Creme Mini Bundt Cake and one Orange Crush mini Bundt Cake. Tins also include an informational card on Camp New Hope and Batten’s Disease.
The Faith Civitan Club will sell the holiday tins at the Salisbury Mall Saturday, Dec. 12, from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. Tastebud’s Coffee Shop on Main Street will also be selling the tins throughout the holidays. Tins can also be purchased at Apple Baking Co. from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.
