Baking supports big cause: Mill Creek sale raises funds for Alzheimer’s Association
Mill Creek Senior Living Community hosted a bake sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday with delightful treats of every variety, suitable for each sweet tooth. Baked goods were made by Mill Creek residents, employees and resident family members. A total of $250 was raised and those funds will go toward the $5,000 target goal, organizers said.
Mill Creek Senior Living Community hosted a craft show in January and has already collected between $600-700 so far, said Brenda Alexander, an assistant administrator at Mill Creek Senior Living Community said.
All of these individual efforts will help benefit the cause leading up to the Marquette Walk to End Alzheimer’s, which takes place Sept. 19.
Each year, Mill Creek Senior Living Community organizes a team for the walk and “it’s really awesome” to be a part of a cause that impacts so many people, Alexander said.
“More and more people are diagnosed with either dementia and/or Alzheimer’s every year and it’s affecting more people. Chances are you know somebody who is affected by it, touched by it or whatever,” Alexander said. “And I know it’s something close to our heart because (of) our residents, including our memory care unit.”
