Can a Cookie Make a Difference?
Three years ago, Ellie Mae employees in Pleasanton stumbled on a simple yet effective way to raise money for the Food Bank: a good, old-fashioned bake sale. The first year, they raised $2,400 from employees baking lemon bars, chocolate chip cookies and fudge brownies. In 2010, they expanded the sale to include healthier items like fresh backyard produce and home-cooked tamales. This year, they went even further, with raffles, original art and photography and more. Each year, Ellie Mae has matched their employees' contributions, adding up to thousands of meals for families in need.
Thanks to Ellie Mae, the EllieCares Team, and their employees for making a difference for their neighbors!
