¡Pies for Puerto Rico!

  • The Exchange Minneapolis 3045 Chicago Avenue Minneapolis, MN, 55407 United States (map)

Pies, Pies, PIES! Pies for your autumn celebrations, pies for your family dinners, pies just because pies are delicious! All kinds of pies all for donations that will support the hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico! After two hurricanes hit the island in a one-month period much of the island is destroyed and a majority is still without power. With limited US governmental aid being given it is up to all of us, Puerto Ricans and allies alike, to help our people survive, thrive and rebuild. 

We are asking for folks in the community to donate pies for this fundraiser AND to come out and purchase pies too. You can make the pies, buy the pies, whatever! They can be sweet pies, savory pies, meat pies, vegetarian or vegan pies, gluten free pies, diabetic sensitive pies, whatever! We’ll be adding to this list but so far pies included will be:
*Pastelillos (meat, veggie & sweet)
*Mango Strawberry Crisp (gluten-free)
*Caramel Apple Pie
*Cheesecake
*Pumpkin Pie
*Pecan Pie
*Mini Veggie Pot Pies
*AND SOOOO MUCH MORE!

All pies will be sold whole and by the pound, we may also do by the slice. We'll have pie boxes available to bring your pies home in and will even gift wrap them, if you like!

PIE DONATIONS: Please contact Billy at billynavarrojr@gmail.com or post here if you would like to donate pies. Please make sure that all ingredients are on each and every pie donated and they are covered in clear plastic wrap or in a large, clear zip lock bag so folks can see your amazing creations. Your donations will be so appreciated in this fundraising effort!

All donations will go to Coalición de Boricuas en Minnesota, a newly formed non-profit that is one of the groups doing direct aid work for the island, collecting goods in many spots across the state. As a newly formed organization, they have a fiscal agent, Impact Lives. You can donate to the Coalicion in the following manner (and, yes, it´s a few steps so please bear with us).
Go to this web page http://www.impactlives.org/donate/52-support-an-event.html
Fill out the donor information. At the bottom of the ¨Select your event¨select the ¨Puerto Rico Hurricane Support Relief¨ in the Comment Box, write ¨Coalicion de Boricuas en Minnesota¨. Because it is a donation to a 501c3, our fiscal agent, donations are tax deductible.
