A Bake Sale for Casa de las Comunidades

Dear Friend:

Casa de Las Comunidades (CDLC) is a Catholic Worker community who accompanies the poor with a focus on immigrant families in Albuquerque, N.M. 

We are in great need of funds for our English as a Second Language (ESL) and youth programs including books, materials and other resources. To assist in developing this program we will be hosting a fall bake sale with the help of Immaculate Conception Parish Church in downtown Albuquerque on Sunday, October 30, and would like to ask for your help. 

There are at least five ways that you can participate in this fundraising event that will support these programs at CDLC:

Bake a cake or any yummy baked good that you are famous for!
• Share this with a friend who you know would enjoy baking for a great cause
• Donate a cake or baked items from your favorite bakery, café or grocery
• Donate monetarily to help our families who will be participating by baking their specialties
• Attend the bake sale on Oct. 30th and buy something delicious for you and your family

At CDLC, we work to accompany individuals and families who have immigrated from their country and culture; our primary focus on women and youth, who have been abused and/or oppressed by broken systems and unjust laws. In the spirit of the gospel message, our programs seek to feed the hungry, clothe naked and befriend the stranger by not only direct assistance but through skills building, faith formation and leadership development.

Please consider supporting us in the fundraiser event for Casa de Las Comunidades Catholic Worker. With questions or for more information on how you can participate please contact me at 504.338.5280 or by email at casadelascomunidades@gmail.com

Thank you and may the Holy Spirit continue to inspire you with its grace,
