HELP! Need More Bread - MVHS December Staff Appreciation - Pumpkin Bread Baking
Can you help?
We are short on bakers. If you didn't respond to this earlier email and are able to bake some loaves we need you!
- Taylor

Greetings Mountain View High School bakers!

Thank you for volunteering to help bake pumpkin bread for our deserving teachers and staff! My name is Taylor House and I am spearheading this years effort to bring some cheer and thanks. We have A LOT of teachers and staff and I need your help to make it happen.

I am hoping that you are willing to make 6-9 mini loaves of pumpkin bread - even more if you are a super baker - baked in disposable foil pans (6" L X 3" W X 2" D).  I have a stack of disposable pans if you need them. I ask that you use the recipe provided below for pumpkin bread consistancy. It is very simple, easy and a tried-and-true recipe.

Once you have baked the bread, please wrap it in foil and deliver it to my house (775 Leona Lane, MV) no later than Monday, December 12.  There will be a box on my porch for you to leave the bread. I will add some seasonal touches as decoration before they are delivered to mailboxes on Wednesday, December 14.

It is a busy time for everyone and more hands make the work go faster. Please let me know how many loaves you are able to bake.  The MVHS staff really, really enjoys this token of appreciation.

Thank you for your help,

Taylor House
