'Guys Making Pies' in Hingham for less fortunate
HINGHAM, Mass. (WHDH) -- A group of middle schoolers from Hingham are taking their talents to the kitchen and whipping up tasty treats for a good cause.
They’re selling the baked goods to help homeless shelters on Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving is days away and everyone is thinking about what they're going to be eating but not a group of boys from Hingham. The last thing they're thinking about is themselves.
“It’s all about giving for them and they surprised me,” said Cara Sullivan, organizer.
Twenty-five boys are busy mixing, whisking, and creating some delicious pies they sold to raise money for kids that don’t have anything.
“They've done everything from start to finish. They do the selling, they help make, them they come up with the concept, they come up with the marketing and this year it’s exploded and we've had about 12 more boys join us,” Sullivan said.
Cara Sullivan is the brave mom in charge of the "Guys With Pies" as they call themselves. Her son, Dylan, came up with the idea last year.
“Last year it was really successful so we decided to come back this year with a lot more people. Last year was $2000, this year it’s going to be double,” said Dylan Melanson.
They're hoping to sell 1,000 pies and then take that money and go shopping.
“They get lists from homeless shelters, we sponsor kids through Department of Children's and Families and we took the boys shopping, they buy all the presents, they helped wrap them, helped deliver them -- everything from start to finish,” Sullivan said.
“The kids there, it’s so sad because all they want for Christmas is like socks or a Lego something like that and they don't get that stuff and it’s so hard for them,” said Patrick Cronin.
“We have everything and we still complain when those kids have nothing and they’re happy the way we are and we’re trying to give back to them,” said Coleman Clifford.
