Big success, donation to North Bend food bank from Sallal Grange

The Sallal Grange in North Bend had a rousing success with its holiday bazaar, held Saturday, Dec. 10.
One of the most successful aspects was the bake sale table. The Grange invited the community to make and donate holiday treats for sale, and committed to donating all of the bake sale proceeds to the Mount Si Helping Hand Food Bank. The response from the community was amazing, everything from cheesecakes to artisan shortbreads to Twin Peaks pies courtesy of Twede’s Café.
“The response was heartwarming," Grange member Leah Aichele said. "The people in this community are very generous, making cookies, cakes and even Hungarian Belish.”
Items were not priced. Instead customers were asked to donate a fair amount. The bake sale brought in $570 and some change, which was donated to the food bank on Dec. 14.
The Food Bank is struggling because of current economic conditions. The same conditions create an even greater need.
The Sallal Grange and Community Hall is committed to assisting the community and supporting local arts and agriculture.
