Calling all bakers, the Cookie Walk is coming!

Calling all bakers!  Our 5th Annual Cookie Walk will be taking place on Saturday, December 10th from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM in Center Ithaca on the Ithaca Commons.  We need your help!  We’re looking to have 100+ varieties of delicious, homemade, holiday cookies in the sale… can you help by contributing 6 dozen of your best cookie?

We’re dreaming of tarts, thumbprints, bar cookies, gingerbread, snowballs, fudge and more!  If your church, office or group has contributions from multiple bakers or would like to have a baking party and make multiple kinds of cookies, let us know!  We’re happy to swing by and pick them up from you.  Remember, cookies can be baked ahead and frozen (we know your holidays are busy!).  We ask that you pack cookies carefully to help us present them beautifully, and put them in a disposable box/tray or a well-labeled container (which we can return after the sale).

Please contact Pat Stefek at, Shannon MacCarrick at or call (607) 844-3529 if you’re interested in baking or have questions.  Thank you for your sweet contributions!

Women Build Trainings are BACK!

You heard right, our ever-popular (and free!) Women Build Training classes are BACK!  Once again, we’re partnering with our friends at Lowes in Ithaca to host 6 construction training classes, all of which begin at 6:00 PM, near the Contractor’s Desk at the far end of the store.

All are welcome, whether you’re a Habitat veteran or brand-new.  Bring a friend, co-worker or family member (ages 14 and up for safety, please).  We’ll provide all of the materials and tools that you need, just bring your questions and your willingness to learn!  Our Women Build trainings are a great way to meet other volunteers and pick up some useful skills for when you volunteer with us:

***November 28th: Women Build Committee Meeting, learn more about our activities, fundraisers and volunteer opportunities!  At the Just Be Cause Center at 6:00 PM!***
November 30th: Tile and Grout
December 14th: Windows and Trim

Questions?  Contact Shannon at or call (607) 844-3529
