For the fourth year in a row, the Joseph F. Glidden Homestead and Historical Center in DeKalb partnered with Pay-It-Forward House in Sycamore for a Market Day dessert fund-raiser. With almost 700 pies sold, 45 percent of the proceeds benefited the two organizations to help with winter heating costs.
As an additional act of generosity, several individuals and businesses purchased pies to donate to local social service agencies, just in time for their Thanksgiving meals.
We extend our sincere thanks to all those who supported this fund-raising effort. Those who helped make this a community win-win by donating their pies to Safe Passage, Hope Haven and Feed’Em Soup were Bill White’s C.A.R. Hospital, Blissful Yoga, Jon Bockman, Russel and Barbara Boyer, Dr. Todd Curtis, Tim Dunlop, Lisa Holiday, Kenda Jeske, Kishwaukee Kiwanis Club, LePrint, Bill Minor, Eric and Kristi Stice, and Walsh & Associates.
Thank you again for your support and generosity this holiday season.
Svetlana Henrikson, President
Glidden Homestead Board of Directors
