Hospital Auxiliary selling pies for Thanksgiving

ELIZABETHTOWN — The Elizabethtown Community Hospital Auxiliary will be selling pies for Thanksgiving.

Now in its eighth year, the Thanksgiving pie sale is one of the auxiliary’s most popular fundraisers. The auxiliary produces cherry, apple and pumpkin pies for purchase by community members. Each pie costs $14 and comes boxed and labeled.

Contact Jane Hooper at 873-3003 to place an order.

Last year, the group produced 98 pies.

“The pie-making process is quite a production,” Laura Sells-Doyle, auxiliary president, said in a news release. “But we really have an incredible, organized system. It’s quite an accomplishment to produce all those pies in only eight hours. This year, we’d love to sell well over 100 pies.”

Orders for pies will be taken until 3 p.m. on Nov. 16. Payment is due when the order is placed. Pies are made on Nov. 20 and may be picked up in the hospital lobby from 2 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 21.

The Elizabethtown Community Hospital Auxiliary participates in fundraising efforts throughout the year, and proceeds go to support the hospital. The group donates clothing and snacks to those who need emergency room care, offers care packages to chemotherapy patients and gives gifts and flowers to patients in the hospital at Christmas, provides scholarship funding and purchases equipment for the hospital.
