Grandfather remembered with 100 birthday cakes


Jodie Sousa was missing her grandfather. The two shared a February birthday and always celebrated them together, but her grandfather passed away in the last year. She decided to do something special for his birthday to honor his memory and her love for him. She decided to donate 100 birthday cakes kits to mark the occasion. Each kit contains a box of cake mix, a tin of frosting, birthday candles and balloons, all packed into a foil cake pan. (Everything but the oil and the eggs!)

Jodie posted of her intentions on Facebook and soon was receiving donations from people in town. Some donated ingredients, some donated funds, but they all chipped in to help Jodie meet her goal. To celebrate her grandfather’s birthday, Jodie donated fifty cake kits to Angel’s Care Closet and fifty cake kits to Doorways Food Pantry. We at Doorways are sure that her grandfather is looking down and smiling. Thank you, Jodie, for remembering those who would otherwise have to do without. And happy birthday to you, too.
