Despite a tough year, much of Westport enjoys far more than its share of the economic pie.
The annual effort is simple: Apple, pecan and pumpkin pies sell for $20 each. All are kosher.
The money also enables the Conservative Synagogue to fund outreach programs. Following Hurricane Sandy, special attention will be paid to the many people suffering this Thanksgiving in the tri-state region.
Individuals and families order pies. So do local businesses; they give them to their employees as thanks, while at the same time aiding a great cause. Last year, hundreds of pies were ordered.
There is no better — or more nourishing — way to give thanks.
(Deadline for ordering is this Monday, November 12. Order forms are available at www.sharethepie.net. Ordered pies can be picked up on Tues., Nov. 20, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the synagogue. For more information, call 203-454-4673.)
