¡Pies for Puerto Rico/Cookie Share!

pies, Pies, PIES. Pies & Cookies for your winter celebrations, pies & cookies for your family dinners, pies & cookies just because pies & cookies are delicious. All kinds of pies all for donations, half will support the hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico and half will support the amazing work of the Minnesota Transgender Health Coalition, the states only by & for, POC led trans community organization. After two hurricanes hit the island in a one-month period much of the island is destroyed and a majority is still without power. With limited US governmental aid being given it is up to all of us, Puerto Ricans and allies alike, to help our people survive, thrive and rebuild. Minnesota Transgender Health Coalition offers MANY FREE services and programs for the community including hormone shot assistance, trans youth programs, adult support groups, a gender gear and winter gear program, a space, The Exchange Minneapolis, for the community to gather and hold events and so much more.

We are asking for folks in the community to donate pies & cookies for this fundraiser AND to come out and purchase pies & cookies too. You can make the treats, buy the treats, whatever. They can be sweet, savory, meaty, vegetarian or vegan, gluten free, diabetic sensitive, whatever. All pies will be sold whole and by the pound. We'll have pie boxes available to bring your pies home in and will even gift wrap them, if you like. Cookies will be sold buffet style and by the pound. Look like you cooked for days AND give back to the community by purchasing these yummy confections. PIE & COOKIE DONATIONS: Please contact Billy at billynavarrojr@gmail.com or post here if you would like to donate pies &/or cookies. Please make sure that all ingredients are on each and every donated item and they are covered in clear plastic wrap or in a large, clear zip lock bag so folks can see your amazing creations.
Your donations will be so appreciated in this fundraising effort. Half of the donations will go to Coalición de Boricuas en Minnesota, a newly formed non-profit that is one of the groups doing direct aid work for the island, collecting goods in many spots across the state. As a newly formed organization, they have a fiscal agent, Impact Lives. You can donate to the Coalicion in the following manner (and, yes, it´s a few steps so please bear with us). Go to this web page http://www.impactlives.org/donate/52-support-an-event.html Fill out the donor information. At the bottom of the ¨Select your event¨select the ¨Puerto Rico Hurricane Support Relief¨ in the Comment Box, write ¨Coalicion de Boricuas en Minnesota¨. Because it is a donation to a 501c3, our fiscal agent, donations are tax deductible.
The other half of the donations will go to support the Minnesota Transgender Health Coalition. You can donate directly here: https://givemn.org/organization/minnesota-transgender-health-coalition

Hello all, we're so excited to bring back our annual Cookie Share event and to combine it with a new event we did last month, ¡Pies for Puerto Rico. We will be raising money for both hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico AND for our local by & for, trans POC led organization the Minnesota Transgender Health Coalition. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE PIES &/or COOKIES PLEASE POST IN THE COMMENT SECTION WHAT YOU'LL BE BRINGING. This will help not only the rest of the community see what will be for sale but also other bakers know what we still need more of.
Thanks all.
Same day. Same time. Same building. Right next door. Grab some fabulous confections and then head over for some fabulous treasures from local artists.
Whoever made this for the last pies for Puerto Rico, it was soooooo good. I brought it to thanksgiving.
For those "not from scratch but decadent as hell" bakers, here's some delicious looking ideas.
Some times for our bakers in case something goes wrong.
Will provide my 3 kinds of apple pie.
I’ll bring cookies.
Some cookie ideas.
