Begin the Holiday Season with Ties & Pies

Thanksgiving is nearly upon us and you know what that means–food. Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, and, of course, pie. This year, in addition to our annual Homecoming Party, Mr. Sid and Coldwell Banker are proud to host “Ties & Pies,” a fundraiser to benefit Community Servings.

Thanksgiving is nearly upon us and you know what that means–food. Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, and, of course, pie. This year, in addition to our annual Homecoming Party, Mr. Sid and Coldwell Banker are proud to host “Ties & Pies,” a fundraiser to benefit Community Servings.

More than a fundraiser, Community Servings’ Pie in the Sky movement fosters community spirit and engages the public in the mission of Community Servings — Massachusetts’ home-delivered, medically tailored meals and nutrition program for the critically ill.

Each November since 1993, Boston’s most generous restaurants, bakeries, caterers, and hotels donate thousands of pies that 700 volunteers then sell to family, friends, and colleagues in time to celebrate the holiday season. Pie in the Sky started as a grassroots bake sale 24 years ago and has grown to be Community Servings’ most successful fundraiser. Each pie–available in apple, sweet potato, pumpkin, and pecan–costs $30, which provides a week’s worth of nutritious, home-delivered meals to a Community Servings’ client and a tasty Thanksgiving treat to the buyers.

Corporate donors provide financial support and donations of in-kind services. Thanks to the dedication and generosity of our donors, pie sellers, and volunteers, $.91 of every $1.00 goes directly to feeding Community Servings’ clients.

Rest assured, when you support Community Servings through Pie in the Sky, your contribution goes to our neighbors in greatest need—homebound individuals and families struggling with HIV/AIDS, cancer. and other life-threatening illnesses and who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. So, as you sit down to Thanksgiving dinner, please remember that a sick neighbor is also eating today, thanks to you!

If pie and philanthropy aren’t enough to tempt you—then what do you think about getting to meet (and purchase a pie from) the New England Patriots own Rob Nikovitch? It’s all happening Thursday, November 17th. Come hungry and we’ll see you there!
