How much power does a muffin hold? The Baptist Health Services Group (BHSG) would probably say more than you think. It all began when the group decided to raise money for Camp Good Grief and help fellow hungry team members. The group hoped to raise $3,000 to sponsor two campers.
“We decided to sell breakfast in the corporate building lobby and donate the proceeds to Camp Good Grief,” said Lisa Wynn.
Besides helping kids, the BHSG team also helped team members whose busy morning schedules didn’t exactly include breakfast. From 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on the third Friday of every month, the group sold muffins, fruit, breakfast bars and more for a nominal fee.
Just last week, the team hit their goal!
“We hope this is a friendly challenge for anyone across the system hoping to raise money collectively for something they feel strongly about,” said Melissa Surles with the Baptist Foundation.
Look for BHSG again in 2018 as they start all over again, helping everyone get a good start.
