Isadore Shapiro AZA Holds Bake Sale
On Sunday, Aug. 9, BBYO Lonestar Region #73 chapter Isadore Shapiro AZA #1329 had its first bake sale of the term to earn money for the upcoming year. The bake sale was held at Belden's on North Braeswood Boulevard and New York Bagel Shop on Hillcroft Street. It began at 8:30 a.m. and ended six hours later.
After a long day of selling, the boys raised a total of $708. Benjamin Cohen, chapter vice president, expressed appreciation to everyone in the community who came out and supported the sale. He said, "There were many extra baked goods, so the men of Shapiro decided to give back to the community. They went to the Bellaire Fire House and gave the firemen the leftover baked goods and some cold bottled water. The firemen were very happy. After we gave them the baked goods, we got an exclusive look at some of the firehouse. We got to tour the kitchen, living room and workout facility. Finally, we got to take a picture with two of the firemen in front of the Bellaire firetruck. The bake sales will be held monthly, so be on the lookout for us!"
Isadore Shapiro AZA #1329 will hold another bake sale on Sunday, Sept. 27, from 8:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. at Belden's and the New York Bagel Shop. All baked goods are by donation. Members of the chapter hope to see some of the Jewish community coming out to support them.
