InstorePoster_BakeSale2*** update*** Liefe and Haydee raised $473 for Safe Passage! Thanks to friends who baked such delicious treats and to everyone who braved the rain to come out and support Liefe and Haydee.

 

Liefe and Haydee are hosting the fifth annual bake sale to benefit Safe Passage on Saturday, May 17, 9-11am.

Liefe and Haydee, ages 11 and 8, sisters and proud supporters of Camino Seguro / Safe Passage, will bake and price items for the sale and will be on hand to greet customers and help them to a delicious treat. They will also have information about Safe Passage so that people can learn more about the important work done by Safe Passage. They worked with their grandmother and many friends to organize this event. Anyone wishing to donate baked goods can email Liefe and Haydee or call Kathy at 542-9736.

“Guatemala is special to me because I was born there,” explains Haydee, who is a second year student at Children’s House Montessori School in Camden. “And when I go back, I like to visit Safe Passage with my family.” The Temples support Safe Passage with many small acts- from bringing toothbrushes in their luggage when they travel to Guatemala to donating the spare change left behind at Clean Bee Laundry to sponsoring a first grade student.

Safe Passage empowers the poorest, at-risk children of families working in the community of the Guatemala City Garbage Dump, by creating opportunities and fostering dignity through the power of education. Safe Passage is a US-registered 501(c)(3) organization. Within a safe and caring environment, Safe Passage provides hundreds of children with a comprehensive and integrated program that fosters hope, good health, educational achievement, self-sufficiency, and confidence.
