I suspect this is really for Katherine, so if there is another better place to put it, please let me know.
I sent out an email the beginning of December, right after we got the cookie donation info. I told bakers about the special packaging and asked them to take a few days and then let me know if they we planning to bake cookies. I heard back from 2 people. I’m going to send a reminder tonight. What I am wondering about is the packaging. I suspect not everyone will be making cookies and I will have extra packaging. Is there a plan for that or anything I should do?
Good question and for any and all hub coordinators, please remind any and all bakers to send all inquiries regarding donations, orders, all program logistics directly to Community Loaves. It makes it so much easier for us and the team to handle the questions directly. That way we’re not creating unnecessary back and forth.
Order questions go to “firstname.lastname@example.org”
Donation questions go to “email@example.com”
General program questions can go to “firstname.lastname@example.org”
A new website footer will soon help people find this information automatically. But in the meantime please help get the word out, as will I.
The addresses are all managed by the same team so members will be served no matter which address they use.
For this baker, do check back on your own donation sheets to make sure that her donation was there and you can also look at your confirmation. I don’t know why she might have been missed, since I’m not there for that bit of the process. But all numbers can be updated to reflect the accurate counts. Please have the baker email me directly and I’ll make the change.
One of my bakers asked me why she didn’t get credit for her roll donation. Apparently these were not added to our individual Dashboard donation number. Is there some way, without driving the tech folks crazy, of indicating at least a donation, a number or just “Thanksgiving rolls”? It appears that this acknowledgment is important to some bakers.
