Thanksgiving is next week and you only have a couple more days to order a pie from Pie in the Sky! Saturday is the deadline.
Here's how it works.
More than 150 of your favorite Boston area chefs and bakers donate their time and talent to bake more than 10,000 apple, pecan, pumpkin, and sweet potato pies. While you can't order a pie from a specific baker, the organizers say, "we assure you that all the pies are made with love."
Hundreds more individuals, community groups, businesses, and social organizations volunteer to sell and distribute those pies.
People, like you, order their holiday dessert through this effort. The money raised is used by Community Servings.
As they say on their webpage, "Each $25 pie you purchase will provide a week's worth of free, home-delivered meals for a man, woman or child in Eastern Massachusetts who is battling a critical illness such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, diabetes or MS."
On the day before Thanksgiving, Wednesday, November 21, 2012 you pick up your pie at the location you selected when you placed your order. There are more than 40 pick-up sites in the Greater Boston area.
