Oklahoma Home and Community Education Sand Creek group donated $300 to Christ’s Cupboard in Pawhuska.

Sand Creek has had several fundraisers during the 2017 year. All fundraisers completed by Sand Creek have been donated back to the community.

The $300 donation to Christ’s Cupboard was from the bake sale at the National Indian Taco Cookoff held earlier in October. The Sand Creek members came together and baked cookies, cakes, pies, breads, caramel apples, pretzels, popcorn balls and so many other goodies.

These women cooked all week to prepare and ensure the bake sale was a big success. They donated money out of their own pockets for supplies to insure every dime went back to the community. It was a team effort and the whole group participated, yes, even the husbands played a part.

A big thank you to the community for supporting these ladies and gentlemen’s efforts. It is great to see the fruits of their labor during the holiday season. Hopefully this donation will help people in Osage County who need a little extra during the season for giving thanks. Stay tuned. …
