For the last two years, we have volunteered our services, baking skills, event planning, and love to the annual Treats and Sweets Day honoring our therapeutic animals in their incredible work. This year, we not exceeded our fundraising goal and helped raise awareness across state lines, we opened up our online bakery for web-based gifts.
Each spring, in honor of National Therapy Animal Day, bakers all over the country participate in creating delicious treats and sweets to help therapy animals provide their much needed services. Etsy shop ChrysalisCrafted contributed additional animal-themed goodies for the event as well as a portion of all shop sales for the month to our event.
Therapy animals provide a unique and invaluable service to the community. They bring so many benefits to people with a variety of challenges including veterans, seniors living with Alzheimer’s, patients in recovery, students facing literacy challenges, people with intellectual or physical disabilities, and those approaching end of life.
Truly, they can help transform our lives! We were thrilled to participate this year and look forward to even greater participation next year. Without the generous gifts of our donors, we could not have made this year’s contribution a success! Thank you to all who supported our efforts and helped these incredible therapy animals continue their work.
