The 7 Best Gingerbread Projects from the Past 7 Years!
A Rich History of Support Pemberton Food Bank
The Pemberton Gingerbread has a strong history of making positive contributions to the Pemberton Food Bank. In 2016, the Pemberton Gingerbread had its most successful year raising over $13,000 for the Pemberton Food Bank. This was predated by a very successful campaign in 2015, where the event raised $10,000 and collected twelve large food hampers. The 2014 Gingerbread Project raised over $8,500 and seventeen hampers of food were collected with all forwarded to the Pemberton Food Bank. We look forward to working together with our sponsors and businesses in the Pemberton area to have another successful year raising funds and food for the Pemberton Food Bank!
