Chip In! for Our Summer Outreach Campaign

Sunday, June 3 - June 24
Maybe you’ve seen their fantastic chocolate chip cookies or granola at Whole Foods or the farmers’ markets. Those awesome goodies are made right here in Alexandria by Together We Bake, a workforce training and personal development program for women in need of a second chance. Together We Bake is centered around a small baking business through which women gain self-confidence, transferable workforce skills, and invaluable hands-on experience, which will allow them to find employment and move toward self-sufficiency. St. Paul’s Outreach Committee invites you to support Together We Bake team members by providing them with aprons, hats, SmarTrip cards, and chocolate chips for baking. Gifts can be made online at All gifts and orders will be shipped directly to Together We Bake. If you have questions, please contact Scott Broetzmann.
