Tamela's message

Thank you for helping us PIE IT FORWARD for Community Servings 25th Anniversary of Pie In The Sky! I'm thrilled to share this great volunteering experience with an team of business partners and friends who care as much as I do about giving back to the communities in which we live, work and play. Since 2009 our team has raised over $280,000 selling 9,929 pies and with your help right now - we are on a mission to help Community Servings reach their 2017 goal to sell a total of 25,000 pies this year!

Community Servings is a well-oiled machine thanks to superior leadership and staff who make volunteering FUN and rewarding and successful. 93 cents of every $1 raised from the Pie In The Sky fundraiser goes directly toward providing healthy meals; something very few non-profit organizations can achieve. Community Servings is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization awarded the coveted four-star rating by Charity Navigator for efficient and effective business practices in providing nutrition services to the critically ill. Charity Navigator is America's premier independent charity evaluation.

Our team started in 2009 from my sheer desperation. My Father was diagnosed with a brain tumor late that Summer and as a faithful pie seller I was worried I might not be able to sell pies that year, depending on his prognosis. I asked a few loyal pie customers to help me sell pies and Team PIE IT FORWARD was founded with 8 members who helped sell over 500 pies and raised over $15,000 that first year.

Sadly, my Father lost his battle with cancer in 2015. He was passionate about helping the less fortunate during his lifetime and taught me the importance of giving back to the community. In essence, he taught me the true meaning of paying it forward; not by words alone but by his actions. He inspired me to kick-start this amazing team and I will forever be grateful for his life lessons as well as the PIE-TASTIC support of Community Servings by the entire team.

ONE $30 PIE = ONE WEEK of delicious meals tailored for each Community Servings Client's nutritional needs and includes meals for their Children and Caregiver. Can you imagine just feeding yourself healthy meals for $30 a week? Every single Pie truly helps to save a life.

Thank you for helping us PIE IT FORWARD for Community Servings. I wish you and your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday season! Tamela aka 'Captain Cutie Pie'
