What is It?

Confections for a Cause is an old fashioned bake sale and lemonade stand that was started when Meredith began her TBI recovery in the Summer of 2016.   Meredith had to give up many activities due to her head injury, but baking was a favorite activity she has always loved and with the help of my friends and family, Meredith has taken her love for baking and turned it into a flagship fundraiser for the Mighty Meredith Project. 

 

Since the very first bake sale held in the Summer of 2016 that raised just over $200, we have now raised over $10,000 for the Mighty Meredith Project to support our initiatives through turning lemons into lemonade and with lots of sugar and sweetness from all of you. 

 

This event is now a signature fundraiser that punctuates summer every August. Hope to see you there next summer!

2019

The 4th Annual Confections for a Cause was a smashing success! Thank you never seems like enough, but without another descriptive and appreciative word, we thank you for your generosity, thoughtfulness, baking ability and your sweet tooth.   The official  earnings are $4,106. That is a lot of baked goods and a lot of Mighty Good Will from all of you!

 

Thank you once again to this Mighty Amazing community for coming together for such a fun day including bakers, buyers, sign holders and volunteers. It was a Mighty Spectacular event.

 

If you were wondering, all remaining baked goods were donated to North Reading Police Department, North Reading, MA Firefighters Local 1857 and some very deserving North Reading families.

Be Kind. It's good for the mind! Today was a day that reminded me of how kindness from so many can make such a difference. Today was a difference-maker kind of day!

 

2018

The third annual Confections for a Cause was held on August 28, 2018 and was a tremendous success, raising more than $4,000 for the Mighty Meredith Project. 

 

Despite the 90 degree heat, friends, family, neighbors and community members came out in droves to support the event.

 

Confections were priced at $2.00 a piece, but many insisted on paying more.  Special thanks to Kathleen Walsh for her cookie donations! Sharing in the event were her sisters and long time friends who have been at her side through her journey.
