The sweetest month of the year has arrived.
The Humane Society of Kitchener Waterloo and Stratford Perth (HSKWSP) has opened registration for the Bake for the Animals campaign, which runs for the month of February.
For the campaign, people are asked to register and set up their online bakery page where they ask friends and family to support their efforts in exchange for some sweet treats. The HSKWSP provides a host kit and they can also access downloadable materials on their website, which are free.
Individuals, groups, schools, and businesses can get involved by planning, promoting, and hosting a bake sale.
They can also get involved by sponsoring or donating to the event.
“We have so much fun watching our supporters whip up cakes, cookies, cupcakes and other sweet treats in support of our animals,” Kathrin Delutis, chief executive officer of HSKWSP said in a prepared statement. “Being one of our signature fundraising events, Bake for the Animals plays a crucial role in supporting the large number of animals we help each year.”
An early bird registration contest has also been set up where the first 12 people to register receive a dog cookie baking set worth $30.
Anyone who might be more interested in eating than baking, can participate in the Pastry Path. In the Pastry Path, you can visit bakeries and eateries to enjoy a sweet treat and complete a stamp card for a chance to win a Cuisinart stand mixer.
50/50 tickets are also available.
“Bake for the Animals is a fun event that anybody can get involved in,” said Nick Burke, director of development for HSKWSP. “We hope our local schools, community groups and businesses will join us in 2023 to bake a difference for animals in need.”
