Baking for Change
Hi! I'm Leah. This summer I am doing two of the things I am most passionate about - baking and helping children in need. When you buy one of my (delicious) baked goods, you will be donating to Families First who has been working with Atlanta's most vulnerable populations for 130 years.
We Reached Our Goal of $2,500!
ABOUT FAMILIES FIRST
My name is Leah Nuffer and I am a rising senior. As you might already know, I have many random hobbies like learning new instruments, watching TV with my parents, and being hilarious for my friends and family... but, really, the things I spend the most time doing are baking and volunteering. I have had some free time on my hands due to Covid-19, and decided to put it to good use. For as long as I can remember, my passion has always been working with children in need. Although I only get to do that virtually this summer, I still want to continue my love of service and help our local community through these tough times. Please buy something yummy and we can make this unprecedented summer a little bit better for others!
