Cooking for the Community Boston Butt Sale
Cooking for the Community (CFTC) is a non-profit organization, a ministry of Eastern Shore Presbyterian Church in Fairhope, dedicated to helping area families. Over the past seven years this organization has made home repairs possible for many families in need, such projects as repairing floors, installing new doors and providing funds for fixing and replacing roofs. They have built many wheelchair-compatible ramps for our less fortunate, disabled neighbors. They have for six years sponsored school children at the Fairhope Rotary Youth Club for after-school tutoring and “Summer Enrichment Academy” programs. Newer areas of involvement have been in providing scholarships for WinShape Camp where campers are challenged to sharpen their character, grow in their relationships, and deepen their Christian faith. Occasionally they have provided meals at character-building breakfasts at Fairhope Intermediate School. In the summer of 2018 CFTC provided scholarships for girls to attend a week-long program called Created for a Purpose, a week-long creative arts program that teaches 3rd-8th grade girls that they are a unique masterpiece created by God.
CFTC’s goal is to expand efforts in all areas of service and to make a greater impact in the lives and in the communities they serve. In order to do this they are proud to announce this year’s fundraiser, the 8th Annual Cooking for the Community Boston Butt Sale! You can purchase a Boston Butt for $40 online or call their message line, 251-210-1229. Orders must be placed by Monday, October 1st, but during the month of August there is a discount available for ordering multiple butts. Pickup date is Saturday, October 13th between 9am and 12noon at Eastern Shore Presbyterian Church, 23050 Highway 98, Fairhope.
