Fundraising with Cinotti's
***Partnering with Pies is Temporarily on HOLD***
On May 11, 2022, The Cinotti Family issued this statement regarding all Fundraising Events:
To Whom It May Concern:
After much prayer and family conversations, Cinotti’s Bakery has decided to put our fundraising program on hold. This includes the annual Thanksgiving Pie Fundraiser.
While we have enjoyed our relationship with you and your organization, circumstances beyond our control have given us reason to terminate this program.
As you are all aware, food shortages weigh heavy in every American home. This is no different for our small bakery. We have constant shortages on our deliveries and when we can get ingredients, the costs associated with them are well beyond what they were even a few short months ago. Substitute ingredients are of lesser quality and while the idea of providing a product for the sake of a fundraiser sounds appealing, we refuse to sacrifice quality and produce a sub-par product. We cannot provide a successful fundraiser if we cannot procure the right ingredients and we cannot absorb the astronomical food costs.
The second reason we are terminating our fundraising program is due to labor. Our staff is full of hardworking men and women whom we appreciate more than anything. They have worked tirelessly over the years to provide the best products which has been a big reason for your fundraiser success. The worker shortage is at an all-time high, and we are not immune to this. Due to the nature of our business and the hard work required for success, we are especially affected by this lack of workers.
We want to again thank you for your partnership in the past years. We are hopeful to restart our fundraising programs in the future. For now, we must do what is best for our family and our business. We will continue to serve our community in any way we can and look forward to seeing you in our store.
Thank you all.
