Share The Pie!

Despite an up-and-down year, much of Westport enjoys far more than its share of the economic pie.

Which is why, as Thanksgiving looms, the Conservative Synagogue and Homes With Hope team up to “Share the Pie.”

The annual effort is simple:  Apple, pecan and pumpkin pies sell for $22 each. All are kosher.

Proceeds help Homes With Hope provide permanent affordable housing, casework and support services, emergency shelter, food, meals, and life skills training.

Donations also provide pies for local Thanksgiving feasts in our community (Saugatuck Congregational Church) and to families in need (Carver Center).

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, 500 pies were ordered. Can Share the Pie beat that record this year?

There is no better — or more nourishing — way to give thanks.

(Deadline for ordering is tomorrow — Monday, November 16.  Order forms are available at www.sharethepie.net. Ordered pies can be picked up on Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 23 and 24, at the Conservative Synagogue, 30 Hillspoint Road. Corporate orders will be delivered. For more information, call 203-454-4673.)

  3. Hey Dan, I forgot to mention that we always have extra pies at the St. Luke Harvest Fair. Some people just don’t pick them up. Others donate them.
    So, if any of your readers are short on pie(s), tell them to come to the Harvest Fair at St. Luke Church on Turkey Hill North this Saturday after 2 p.m.. We’ll try to accommodate them. Pies ( about 10 varieties) are from Lyman Orchard, are frozen ready for baking, cost $16 and are very good. We take cash and credit cards. Thanks.
