Elizabethtown Elizabethtown Community Hospital’s auxiliary will be selling homemade pies for Thanksgiving.
Now in its seventh year, the Thanksgiving pie sale is one of the auxiliary’s most popular fundraisers. The auxiliary produces cherry, apple and pumpkin pies for purchase by community members. Each pie costs $14 and comes boxed and labeled.
Last year, the group produced 108 pies.
“As you might imagine, the actual pie-making day is quite a production,” Laura Sells-Doyle, auxiliary president, said. “But we really have it down to a science. It’s quite an accomplishment to produce over 100 pies in eight hours. This year, we’d love to sell 125 pies.”
Orders for pies will be taken until 3 p.m. on Nov. 18. Payment is due when the order is placed. Pies are made on Nov. 22 and may be picked up in the hospital lobby on Nov. 23 from 2 to 4 p.m.
The Elizabethtown Community Hospital Auxiliary participates in fundraising efforts throughout the year; and proceeds go to support the hospital. The group donates clothing and snacks to those who need emergency room care, offers care packages to chemotherapy patients, and gives gifts and flowers to patients in the hospital at Christmas. They also provide scholarship funding and purchase equipment for the hospital’s various departments.
