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.
Proceeds help Homes With Hope (formerly Interfaith Housing) provide permanent affordable housing, casework and support services, emergency shelter, food, meals, and life skills training. The money also enables the Conservative Synagogue to fund outreach programs.
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 Nov. 17. Order forms are available at www.sharethepie.net. Ordered pies can be picked up on Tues., Nov. 23, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the synagogue parking lot. Corporate orders of 10 pies or more will be delivered to offices, upon request.
