Charity Gingerbread Competition Crest Foods’ third annual Charity Gingerbread Competition was our toughest to date! Every customer that signed up to participate was shipped a standard gingerbread house kit to use with only two rules: the kit provided had to be used for the structure and anything that was added must be edible. Every team really pulled out all the stops to try and win some holiday money for their charity of choice! Our team of judges had a difficult time deciding on the top three winners. It was so close, in fact, that it didn’t feel right to only award three prizes. In a departure from our standard rules, we decided to make donations to all chosen chari- ties this year! Thank you to our customer teams for making 2018 our most fierce competition yet, and for helping us make a difference in your local communities!

1st Place: $1,000 donation to Covenant House Vancouver ( Covenant House Vancouver provides shelter and support services to young people aged 16 to 24 who have fled physical, emotional and sexual abuse; those who have been forced from their homes; and those who have aged out of foster care. 2nd Place: $500 donation to ( makes it easy for anyone to help a public classroom in need. This specific donation went toward an at-risk first grade classroom in Green Bay, WI that requested a new rug for students to gather at throughout the day and use for learning and collaboration. 3rd Place: $250 donation to The Abundant Living for All Foundation ( ALFA is an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to supporting art, horticulture, culinary and social programs for adults with intellectual disabilities so that they can have meaningful opportunities to achieve full and abundant lives.
