Cose Dolci Support Fund

Hello!  My sisters, Beth Thompson and Jackie Mafuli, own Cose Dolci Bakery in downtown Ferguson, MO.   They have built their darling little bakery from the ground up over twelve years; having started at the Ferguson Farmer’s Market all those years ago.

Both have tried to remain positive through all of the unrest in this beautiful community.  Thankfully, there has been no physical damage to their bakery.  But the business has struggled financially and they have endured many sleepless and stress filled nights these last several months.  

They have worked tirelessly to build this business over the years, often working 16 hour days, with little or no pay, to keep it going.  They have stayed in Ferguson because they believe in this community and LOVE their customers.

Through all of this unrest, they remain positive; offering free Peace Sign or Smiley face cookies to promote peace and happiness during this troubled time in Ferguson.  They are pillars of the community and I could not be more proud to call them my sisters!

But like our father, they are proud.  Too proud to ask for assistance during these very difficult times.  Fortunately, I am not!  :)  

They need your help to weather the storm long term. And this community needs them!  To lose another business to the unrest would be a real tragedy.  Please help me help them.  

Any assistance you could offer would be sincerely appreciated.

A message from Beth and Jackie:

"Our sincere thanks to you all for your contributions! We truly appreciate your generosity and kindness! Our goal is to stay in business so that we can continue doing what we love--baking delicious treats that we hope bring comfort and joy to people's lives.

We believe in this community and feel so lucky that the community has supported our dream these past 8 years. We have forged relationships and friendships with our customers that are so valuable to us.

It is a pleasure to serve this community and we hope to be here for many years to come, serving up delicious "sweet things."

Thank you, again, for your support and remember to "Eat Sweet!"

Sincerely -- Beth and Jackie"

Our visit to St. Louis would not be the same without a stop at Cose Dolci.
