JTConnect invites Jewish teens in grades 8-12 to help bake 100+ pumpkin pies to donate to local soup kitchens for their Thanksgiving meals. Pie baking will kick off with a virtual event on Sunday, Nov. 22, at 4 p.m., and is open to all teens.
Sign up by Friday, Nov. 13 to bake 1, 2 or 3 pies and you’ll receive an email regarding where to pick up your ingredients – multiple pick-up spots in West Hartford, East of the River and Simsbury.
The Nov. 22 Pie Bake will begin with some words of inspiration and a first hand account from an individual who has experienced homelessness and benefitted from one of the organizations who will receive the pies.
Then bake your pies! Bake alone or join a Zoom breakout room with your friends – it’s your choice. When your done baking, drop off your pies at one of several locations. Pies will be distributed to soup kitchens on the following Monday.
