The Able Baker in Maplewood Village donated $1,025 — the proceeds from the bakery’s annual “Apple Peeling Party” — to Rent Party this week.
Able Baker owner Julie Pauly presented the check to Rent Party’s Chris Dickson. It represented $15 per hour for every hour volunteered for the apple peeling — an annual event held before Thanksgiving.
Rent Party is a live music series based in Maplewood and South Orange. Proceeds from these shows help fight hunger in our community. Read more about Rent Party (and how you can donate or help) here.
When the donation was announced, Dickson said he was thrilled The Able Baker thought of Rent Party with such an ‘a-peeling’ fundraiser” and added: “These kind of local, grassroots fundraising efforts are at the ‘core’ of Rent Party’s success.”
Pauly hopes to make this an annual event, which will give Dickson a year to work on his apple puns.
