Sweet P Bakery and The Porch Sustain and Expand

Tax deductible
The Porch and Sweet P Bakery are joining as one non-profit organization. By combining our resources under a single umbrella, we aim to strengthen our commitment to training and employing adults with disabilities. We have plans to move Sweet P Bakery to a larger space, allowing us to increase the training and hiring of adults with disabilities. This expansion will enable us to ship our baked goods nationwide and supply other businesses with our products.

How will your donation help?

To support these initiatives and fulfill our goals, we are launching a GoFundMe campaign. We believe that with your generous contribution, you can make a tangible difference in the lives of adults with disabilities. Here's how your donation will be utilized:

-Expanding Sweet P Bakery: Your donation will allow us to triple the size of Sweet P Bakery's commercial kitchen. This expansion will facilitate our wholesale operations and enable direct-to-consumer shipping. We will also utilize these funds to create a revamped website that can handle online orders, shipping, and nationwide marketing of our products.

-Increasing Employment Opportunities: With your support, we will be able to hire all the upcoming class of baking students graduating in December. This will double our current staff of 6 Sweet P bakers to 12, creating more job opportunities.

-Diversifying Roles: Your donation will also assist in creating additional non-baking positions at Sweet P Bakery, such as production, packaging, and shipping roles. This will broaden the spectrum of employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

-Sustaining The Porch: As a community treasure, The Porch heavily relies on fundraising and grants to balance its operating expenses. Your contribution will help ensure that The Porch continues to thrive and provide inclusive employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

-Inclusive Employment: Your donation will enable us to hire more employees with all abilities at The Porch, as we are consistently seeking to provide inclusive employment opportunities.

-Spreading Kindness: Lastly, your support will allow us to continue modeling kindness in our community, particularly during these challenging times. One job shift a week can truly change a person's life, and we invite you to be a part of this transformative change.

We sincerely believe that no matter how small or big, every donation counts. In the coming weeks, we will have more ways for you to support our mission through volunteer opportunities and events. We have recently formed a new board of directors and are excited about the endless possibilities that lie ahead.

We are truly grateful for your continued support and appreciate seeing you at The Porch, enjoying the delicious treats from Sweet P Bakery. Your help will not only impact the lives of individuals with disabilities but also contribute to a more inclusive and compassionate society.

Thank you in advance for your generous contribution. Together, we can make a difference that lasts a lifetime.
