Girls Thrive conquered Bake Day with the very popular Pop-A-Wheelie Wheat baked fresh to benefit the group. The fun filled day ended with 53 loaves sold and generous contributions to the change jar. Girls Thrive plans to put the funds towards scholarships, gear, and healthy snacks to boost the program.
We hope you were able to meet some of the group as they dished out tastes and introduced the goals of this Bake Day. If you wish to learn even more about the group check out http://www.girlsthrive.com/ or follow them on facebook (GirlsThriveMT).
Great Harvest Bread Co. Helena was able to collect close to $260.00 and 91 pounds of food during our Food Drive this January. We will add 10 pounds of fresh milled flour to that balance for Helena Food Share.
THANK YOU! We sincerely appreciate your help with these donations!
Here at Great Harvest Helena we use whole grains in many of our baked goods because we know they offer valuable nutritional benefits. Millet is one such whole grain found at the bakery in Dakota and High Five Fiber bread or Trek and Harvest Bars. Millet may be tiny, but it packs a powerful punch of nutrition and health benefits from heart protection to diabetes control to breast cancer and asthma prevention. Learn more about the benefits of eating millet at the website for The World’s Healthiest Foods.
Taste the delicious combination of craisins, chocolate chips, peanut butter and seeds in a Trek Bar. This nutritious bar is just the thing to sustain you on a short trek or a long adventure! Available every day.
The Bake Day Fundraiser on Thursday June 4, 2015 was a huge success Thanks to all who participated. The total raised included 58 loaves of Welcome Home Wheat and a huge amount of change in the jar. All proceeds were donated to Youth Homes of Helena!
Youth Homes was selected by visitors to the bakery during Vote Week May 11 – 16. Check out the mission and services of Youth Homes at http://www.youthhomesmt.org/.
We have been working to reduce our impact on resources. A recent energy audit showed that we are on the right track. Take a look at our Environmental Action Policy to see what we aim to do and what we have accomplished so far.
Thank You! You contributed 119 pounds of food for Helena families in just two days at Great Harvest. Absolutely Fantastic! We’ll be baking 12 loaves of Honey Whole Wheat to round out those meals. Everyone at Great Harvest Helena appreciates your help in making this event a great success as well as your support of Helena Food Share!!
Thank you for the support of the Helena Area Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA)!
The Bake Day fundraiser on June 26, 2014 was a success with 62 loaves of Casa Segura (“safe house”) Bread sold. This bread was named in honor of the mission to promote safe and secure home environments for children. That’s a LOT of bread and a lot of support. All proceeds from the bread and additional funds from the “change” jar will go directly to the Helena Area CASA.
CASA intends to use proceeds from this fundraising event to:
1). provide ongoing training and orientation for new CASA’s; or
2). contribute to kids daily lives by purchasing school and special needs items, funding enrollment in programs and camps in the community, or purchasing yearbooks or other important memorabilia for graduating high school students.
