Buy a Pie, Feed Five: A Sweet Way to Give Back in 2012

‘Pie in the Sky’ pie sale expected to raise funds for 10,000 nutritious meals in 2012

DENVER (Oct. 20, 2012) – There’s an easy way for Coloradans to sweeten the life of neighbors fighting cancer, kidney failure, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses this Thanksgiving. Project Angel Heart, a Denver-based nonprofit organization that prepares and delivers nutritious meals to ailing women, men and children in the Denver metro area and Colorado Springs, is selling holiday pies to benefit their home-delivered meal program.

The Pie in the Sky pie sale offers residents of the Denver metro area and Colorado Springs the opportunity to purchase scrumptious seasonal pies online for just $25 each ($20 is tax deductible). With each pie that is purchased, Project Angel Heart will prepare and deliver five nutritious meals to a Coloradan in need. Purchasers can pick up their pies at one of 13 pick-up locations on Nov. 20 (Denver) or Nov. 21 (Colorado Springs).

“Pie in the Sky is a simple—and delicious—way to support neighbors in need this year,” said Erin Pulling, executive director at Project Angel Heart. “And because all pies have been generously donated by Bluepoint Bakery, each pie sold will make a tremendous difference for our organization and for the clients we serve.”

Thanks to Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, the presenting sponsor of this year’s ‘Pie in the Sky’ pie sale, current Project Angel Heart clients will also receive holiday pies to enjoy and share with family and friends.

“In addition to our support for this worthwhile cause, we want to reach out to those in our community who are struggling with illness this Thanksgiving,” said Amy Venturi, director of social investment for Anadarko. “At Anadarko, we are grateful to be part of the community and we want to give back in a way that shares the holiday spirit and makes people smile.”

Bluepoint Bakery, a wholesale gourmet bakery located in Denver, has once again teamed up with Project Angel Heart to make this event possible. Bluepoint Bakery makes a full line of products, including gourmet pies, with an emphasis on quality and natural ingredients.

With the support of the community, Project Angel Heart hopes to sell 2,000 pies by Nov. 15, which will provide 10,000 meals to Project Angel Heart clients. For more details about Pie in the Sky, visit www.PieInTheSkyColorado.org.
