Chestnut Hill, MA – November 1, 2013 – Mark Lippolt, Senior Vice President of Operations at Hammond Residential Real Estate, is pleased to announce that the company is participating in the 21st annual Community Servings “Pie in the Sky” bake sale.
More than a fundraiser, “Pie in the Sky” fosters community spirit and engages the public in the mission of Community Servings -- Massachusetts' free home-delivered meals and nutrition program for the critically ill. Each November since 1993, Boston's best restaurants, bakeries, caterers and hotels donate thousands of pies that over 600 volunteers then sell to family, friends and colleagues. Each pie costs $25, providing a week's worth of medically-tailored home-delivered meals to a Community Servings' client and a tasty Thanksgiving treat to the buyer.
Hammond has assembled a team of pie-selling agents and staff. Sales are currently underway and will continue through November 23. Two Hammond Residential locations will serve as pie pick-up sites in connection with the drive: the Headquarters office located at 826 Boylston Street, Chestnut Hill, and the South End location at 10 Berkeley Street/ATELIER 505. Pie orders can be placed by visiting Hammond’s team page at http://www.pieinthesky.org/event/pies/team.cfm?ID=401 or by calling 617-731-4644 x 239.
Mark Lippolt said, “Having served on the Community Servings’ Board Chair for nine years, I have seen the difference that just one $25 donation can make in the life of an individual suffering with a critical illness. Each week Community Servings prepares and delivers 7,500 lunches and dinners to the homes of over 800 individuals and families who cannot shop and cook for themselves because of an acute, life-threatening illness. The Hammond Residential team is proud to support the work of Community Servings, and we look forward to a successful 2013 ‘Pie in the Sky’ sale.”
