For the second year in a row, the Annapolis Great Harvest bakery, located at 208 Ridgely Ave., and local owners Thomas and Pam Storm invite the community to partner together in supporting the Alzheimer’s Association this holiday season. Great Harvest will be selling a special “Memory Loaf” – the bakery’s signature Honey Whole Wheat loaf tied with a purple bow – for $10. One hundred percent of sales will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association. This fundraising effort will take place from Monday, Dec. 2 to Saturday, Dec. 7.
“The Alzheimer’s Association is a very important organization to us personally,” says Thomas. “My wife’s father, Paul Sherwood, who passed away last year, suffered from Alzheimer’s. In our own small way, we want to help further the search for a cure and support others who struggle with this heartbreaking disease.”
The Storms invite customers to share personal stories and honor a loved one or friend who has been touched by Alzheimer’s. Stop by the bakery any time during the two weeks after Thanksgiving to purchase this very special loaf.
Originally founded in 1976 in Great Falls, Montana, Great Harvest has more than 200 bakeries located throughout the nation including Alaska and Hawaii. All bakeries are locally owned and operated, and no two are alike. Great Harvest is known for handcrafted breads made with freshly ground whole wheat purchased from family-owned farms. The neighborhood bakeries create an array of legendary fresh-baked breads and sweets, as well as specialty items during the holidays. Great Harvest mills its whole wheat daily. The fresh flour is used within two days to guarantee the best taste and nutritional value.
The Annapolis Great Harvest bakery is open 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 6:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information, visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/GreatHarvestAnnapolis.
