Mix It Up Bakery Customers make a BIG difference for Big Brothers Big Sisters
People always say, ‘every little bit makes a big difference’ and never was it more true! Customers of Mix it Up Bakery, located at 64 N Main Street, spent the month of August filling the tip/donation jar for Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Fond du Lac County. The end result? A check for $685!
“I stopped into Mix It Up Bakery the Saturday of Fondue Fest to say hello,” said Tammy Young, Executive Director of BBBS. “Little did I know there would be a check for $685 waiting for me.” “As evidenced by their generosity, Mix It Up Bakery Customers are the best!” said Jeanne Page, co-owner of Mix It Up Bakery. “I couldn’t agree more!” said Young. “It goes to show that everything you do, no matter how small you might think it is, makes a BIG difference!”
