October 5, 2011, (La Mesa) --Thanksgiving is coming and the people of the United Church of Christ of La Mesa (UCCLM) invite you to let Mama do the baking this year. Church members are helping Mama’s Kitchen raise money to provide nutritious meals for San Diego men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS and cancer.
Mama’s Kitchen hopes to sell more than 6,000 pies during the six-week sales period, which starts October 16, will raise $125,000 and fund nearly 40,000 meals. Each pie sold provides more than six home-delivered meals to a neighbor struggling with critical illness.
You can help by purchasing a pumpkin, pecan, apple, or sugar-free apple pie for $20 ($15 of each pie purchased is tax-deductible, and $20 of each Love-A-Client Raffle Pie is tax-deductible). These may be ordered online atwww.mamaskitchen.org now through November 20 (enter “UCCLM” on the Team Line). Pies may be picked up at the location of your choice on November 23 from 10:00 until 4:00.
The church is located at 5940 Kelton Avenue, La Mesa, CA 91942 (619-464-1519, www.ucclm.org).
