ELIZABETHTOWN - Elizabethtown Community Hospital's auxiliary will be selling pies this Thanksgiving.
Now in its sixth 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 $12 and comes boxed and labeled.
Last year, the group produced 88 pies.
"As you might imagine, the actual pie-making day is quite a production," laughed Laura Sells-Doyle, auxiliary president. "But we have it down to a science at this point. It's amazing to people that we produce 88 pies in about 8 hours. This year, we'd love to hit the 100 pie mark."
Orders for pies will be taken until 3 pm on Nov. 19. Payment is due when the order is placed. Pies are made on Nov. 23 and may be picked up in the lobby of the hospital on Nov. 24 from 2 - 4 pm.
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.
