About Wings of Providence
Wings of Providence is a multi-faceted support agency for women and children fleeing domestic violence. They provide housing, resources, life skills programs, and assistance for these women and children starting over again, usually with nothing.
For 24 years my sister, Tracy, has been baking 200+ dozen holiday treats for the moms, children, and staff at Wings of Providence for their annual Christmas party. Due to back and knee issues, Tracy is no longer able to stand and bake the many days she used to. This year, the mission is being reinvented by extending an invitation to anyone who wants to be part of making Wings of Providence Christmas party a sweet success. Sadly, the need for shelter has grown, and with this year’s opening of a second building at Wings of Providence, 400+ dozen treats will be needed.
How You Can Help
We are inviting you to Bake a Batch for Wings of Providence. As you do your holiday baking, please set aside 2 or 3 dozen of your favourite homemade holiday treat. (Or more if you like.) Cookies, squares, cakes, tarts, drops, fudge, buttons, bark – whatever you usually make will be wonderful. Together, each of us contributing a bit, we can help ensure that the women, children and staff at Wings of Providence can continue to have a delicious Christmas party.
