I regularly encourage residents to support local businesses and organizations and am known to say that “strong businesses make a strong community,” for when we support our local businesses they return the favor and support organizations in our community. Mutual support within our community is a perfect example of what makes Penfield a great place to live and raise a family.
That’s why I am happy to help spread the word that Penfield’s Shepherd Home and Bauman’s Farm Market have again partnered to offer a mum sale from September 8 through October 31 to benefit the important work of the Shepherd Home.
Just stop in at Bauman's, pick out your favorite three-gallon mums, and when you check out tell them it's for Shepherd Home at checkout! Mums are $10.99 each, and for every mum sold 50% percent will go to the Shepherd Home to continue their beautiful mission of providing comfort and compassionate care to members of our community with a terminal illness, in a way that cherishes the dignity of each individual and meets their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Although the Shepherd Home has temporarily paused resident care due to the coronavirus pandemic, their mission continues and so must fundraising so they are prepared to resume resident care when it is safe to do so.
Bauman’s is located in Penfield at 1340 Five Mile Line Rd. The Shepherd Home is located at 1959 Five Mile Line Road. Learn more about the Shepherd Home at https://www.shepherdhome.org/
Best wishes for a successful fundraiser!
Please do your part: wear a mask, practice physical distancing, help stop the spread to save lives.
Be safe and be well!
