Sault Ste Marie Museum Launches Holiday Baking Box Fundraiser

Holiday Box

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – The Sault Ste. Marie Museum has come up with a sweet means of raising some money for its Education and Programming Department.

The museum’s Holiday Baking Box fundraiser runs until December 11th.

Katie Huckson, Outreach and Programming Coordinator at the Sault Ste Marie Museum, says COVID-19 has made fundraising more of a challenge this year.

“We haven’t been able to do a lot for revenue generation or outreach and programming this season,” says Huckson. “We’re partnering with Scott Coffee Co. because they have a kitchen that we’re able to use, so we’re combining some of our own recipes and some of their classic recipes like their chocolate chip cookies and their ginger cookies.”

Huckson says the museum hosts a variety of educational programs for youth and is currently working on a virtual programming kit for local school boards, and that money raised will go toward those programs.

Up for sale are boxes of holiday goodies including Scott Coffee Co.’s chocolate chip cookies, ginger cookies, shortbread, Rice Krispie squares, and chocolate Skor bark.

The boxes cost $35 each and orders can be placed over the phone by calling (705) 759-7278 or in-person at the museum.

The Sault Ste Marie Museum is home to The Algoma Weavers’ Guild, the Artspeaks Project, and The Sault Ste. Marie & 49th Field Regiment R.C.A. Historical Society.

It is currently open by appointment only Tuesday to Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
