Bountiful has been home to Deurden’s for 60 years and so this community is very near and dear to our hearts. We have three generations of loyal customers who believe in shopping at locally owned small businesses like ours and we know how lucky we are to have them. So many of our clients have become like family to us. One of those special clients is Tammi!
Tammi is a serious baker with a generous heart and a happy spirit. We had no idea of all that she does to help our community until she called us about a range that wasn’t working. She needed to produce a huge quantity of breadsticks for a bake sale the following day. We offered to host the event and let her fire up the 15 ovens in our showroom to get the job done. In the process, we learned that Tammi has been holding bake sales out of her home and calling them Fundraiser Fridays!
One Friday of each month Tammi picks a recipe, lets everyone know what she’s baking, and gets to work on turning out some incredible treats. It may be flavored artisan bread (pesto, sun dried tomato, parmesan,cinnamon, nutella), cinnamon rolls, soft breadsticks, cookies or even chocolates. She relies on her family, neighbors and friends to lend a hand in the preparation.
She does this to benefit a different family in our area who could use some financial help due to illness, injury, missed work or other tragedy. In May and June the fundraisers were for the Jaggi family of Woods Cross. They have suffered some devastating medical problems and the medical bills to go along with it.
Tammi raises enough money to make a difference by suggesting a price for her goodies, but then allowing people to donate whatever amount they choose in an anonymous donation jar. We now host Fundraiser Fridays once a month and are so thrilled to be able to give back to the community that means so much to us! We would love to have you stop in during our next event!
