Pies for Thanksgiving

by Fabre Sanders

It's that time of year again.  Dreams of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and homemade desserts are filling our thoughts and bringing back wonderful memories.  Some people in our community are not so lucky. Faced with a life threatening illness, they are overwhelmed with the thought of getting a regular meal on the table, let alone a delicious holiday meal shared with friends and family.

Community Servings is a wonderful organization that helps individuals and families in the Greater Boston area when they need help the most. Community Servings is a not-for-profit food and nutrition program providing services throughout Massachusetts to individuals and families living with critical and chronic illnesses. They give their clients, their dependent families and caregivers appealing, nutritious meals, and send the message to those in greatest need that someone cares.

Thanksgiving is a very exciting time for Community Servings -- their largest fundraiser of the year -- PIE IN THE SKY.  They truly know how to put the FUN in fundraiser by having Boston restaurants bake and donate pies, and selling them to raise funds to help with their year-round programs. You get to enjoy a delicious pie for Thanksgiving, and a client in a difficult situation is able to benefit with healthy meals. Our family has been selling pies and helping with the fundraiser for five years now, and we are joining them again this year.

It's easy to order a pie.  Visit my personal Website here:
From here, just pick your wonderful flavor. You can also e-mail me at for more information or if you'd like to pay by check.

There are many pickup locations throughout the Greater Boston area, but again we are offering a private pickup site for our friends and family at our home in Holliston. We will have the pies available at our home on Tuesday, November 22nd after 6pm, or anytime after that. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO PICK UP PIES AT OUR HOME, PLEASE USE PRIVATE PICKUP SITE #62 - SANDERS/MILLER HOME. PLEASE NOTE THIS WILL NOT SHOW UP IN THE DROPDOWN BOX AS A PICKUP SITE, YOU HAVE TO MANUALLY ENTER THIS INFORMATION.

If you are not going to be around for the holidays, please consider purchasing a pie for a Community Servings client, or making a donation to this great organization. Every penny counts and they use each dollar wisely. You can also do this through my page above.

Please let us know if you have any questions, and we hope you will consider this fundraiser this year.

Best Wishes,
Fabre Sanders & Larry Miller

Thanks everyone for your support! It has been a cause that has been near to my heart for almost 20 years now. If you still have problems with the link, feel free to e-mail me at and I'll help you through the order. I also encourage you to check out the organization's website at and consider a volunteer day in the kitchen - roll up your sleeves and make some good food for a great cause!

The link is accidentally including the link to this article too. You can just copy and paste the link as it appears in the article.

These pies area win/win. For a very reasonable price you get a delicious pie and the money goes to a wonderful cause. As an added bonus, Fabre and Larry bring all of the pies to their house so you don't even have to leave Holliston to pick up your pie.

Thanks for the nudge, Fabre. I still need to order my pie! And I encourage others to do so as well. I can't think of a worthier cause (and the pies are fabulous, to boot!)
