|MVHS Staff Appreciation Help Needed, Mini Pumpkin Bread Baking|
On behalf of MVHS PTSA I am coordinating efforts for a special December Staff Appreciation event. Each year mini pumpkin bread is baked by generous parent volunteers and delivered to all of our amazing teachers and staff. You are receiving this email because you signed up to help with staff appreciation events.
I am hoping that you can help by baking 6-9 mini loaves of pumpkin bread. The loaf size is (6" L x 3" W x 2" D) and should be delivered in disposable pans wrapped in aluminum foil. I have seen this size disposable pan sold at Safeway and Target. The recipe below is simple, easy and yummy! Please bake from this recipe so all loaves are the same.
Please deliver baked, aluminum wrapped bread to my doorstep (775 Leona Lane, Mountain View) by Monday, December 17. There will be a table on my front porch for pumpkin bread. I will add seasonal touches and a card to the wrapped bread and deliver to the teachers and staff on Tuesday, December 18.
If you can help by baking please let me know the following: 1.) yes, you can help; 2.) how many mini loaves you are able to bake.
The MVHS staff really, really appreciates this annual gift of appreciation and look forward to receiving it every year!
If you have any questions please email at taylorbhouse@xxxxxxxxx or call me at (650) 814-3171.
Thank you for helping to continue this annual event!
