|Pumpkin Bread Bakers Needed: MVHS Teacher & Staff Appreciation Gift|
On behalf of MVHS PTSA I am coordinating efforts for a special December Staff Appreciation event. Each year loaves of mini pumpkin bread is baked by generous parent volunteers and delivered to all of our teachers and staff. You are receiving this email because you signed up on the eList to help.
I am hoping you can help by baking 6-9 mini loaves. The mini loaf size is (6" L x 3" W x 2" D) and should be delivered to me in disposable aluminum pans wrapped in aluminum foil or plastic wrap. I have seen this size disposable pan sold at Safeway and Target. It is really important that we use mini loaf pans. The recipe below is simple, easy, tried-and-true and delicious! Please bake from this recipe so all loaves are consistent.
Please deliver baked, aluminum wrapped bread to my doorstep (775 Leona Lane, Mountain View) by Monday, December 16. There will be a table on my front porch for the bread. I will add seasonal touches and a card to the wrapped bread and deliver to the teachers and staff on Tuesday, December 17.
If you can help by baking please let me know: 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 taylorbhouse@xxxxxxxxx or call/text me at (650) 814-3171.
Thank you for helping to continue this annual event!
