  • Alpine Kind Raises a Sweet Amount of Funds for Fire Survivors

    • Share:
    Three charming representatives of Alpine Kind visited the Alpine Mountain Empire Chamber of Commerce office on July 17.

    Alpine residents Andrea and her two young children wanted to donate money made from a children’s weekend bake sale to survivors of the July 6 West Fire in East Alpine.

    Andrea said daughter Shelby, 6, and son R.J., 4 1/2, with about six other children and mommies held the three-hour bake sale on July 14 outside Chic Boutique, 2175 Arnold Way. 

    “We had such a good response from the community,” Andrea said.

    Standing as tall as he could, R.J. carefully handed over a white envelope with the rainbow-colored “Alpine Kind” written on it.  Inside were the proceeds from sales of delicious chocolate-covered pretzels, cookies and brownies.

    The total donation for distribution through the nonprofit Alpine Community Foundation was $205 in bills and four pennies.

    “It was a positive distraction for us because my husband just deployed eight days ago,” Andrea said about the helpful effort. “It’s good for us and we all love Alpine!”
