“Bake or create for me, please?”

Hi friends, family, community members!

TARPS is looking for volunteer bakers and crafters to help fill our booth at the annual Chester Fall Festival on the Green.

Bake goods can feed a shelter

We’d love our regular bakers to bake and we invite anyone with some kitchen ability, to feel free to donate a yummy baked item or two. If you can make dessert favorites like cookies, brownies, cupcakes or bars package them individually for sale. If you are awesome at breads, cakes or pies feel free to bring them too.

Handmade crafts make for great fundraising

Are you crafty or artistic? Do you have a favorite art or craft ability you can share with us? In the past we’ve had generous artisans donate quilts, knitted and crocheted items, needlework, carved, turned wood items, jewelry, note cards… just about any handmade item for sale. Please consider us while you are crafting.

Drop off points

Donated handcrafts and baked goods may be delivered to the shelter (1758 Route 103S, Chester—across from the “Welcome to Chester” sign) by 8 p.m. Friday September 19. Or early morning at our booth on Saturday or Sunday.

Questions? Email us at shelter@tarpsanimalsheltervt.org.
