This year, the Carleton College Custodial Scholarship Fund Bake Sale and Craft Fair was a huge success. On December 1, everyone returned to the Weitz Center to shop and purchase baked goods. There were just over 70 vendor spots and lots of happy shoppers. Thank you to everyone who participated in any way: vendors, shoppers, bakers, Bon Appétit, facilities staff, and custodial salespeople.

This year we are happy to announce that the Craft Fair, which consists of tabling fees paid by vendors raised $2,125. The Custodial Bake Sale, which includes proceeds from: baked goods (donated by custodial and other staff), pastries and coffee (donated by Bon Appétit), and sales of Sloppy Joes (made by the Northfield VFW and the Bake Sale Committee) raised $1,847 for a grand total raised for the Custodial Scholarship Fund of $3,972.

The Custodial Scholarship Fund also receives funds from outright gifts, planned giving, and payroll deduction. If you are interested in making a donation, please contact gift accounting at 507-222-5611.
