“We have been blessed with so much, and we try to give back whenever we can, and as a bakery, we are able to provide a little slice of home for those in need.” - Robert Jucker
Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
While most are celebrating with friends and family this Thanksgiving, there are many more that are going without a holiday meal. This Thanksgiving, Houston’s favorite “memory makers,” Three Brothers Bakery, will be working to bring a taste of the holidays to those that are less fortunate through its “Little Slice of Home for the Homeless” campaign.
Partnering with Star of Hope Mission, Three Brothers Bakery will be donating one slice of pie for every full pie sold in the bakery to the shelter to help them provide a sweet dessert to its clients for a Thanksgiving dinner on November 26. The slices of pie will be going directly to the Thanksgiving dinner Star of Hope hosts, which provides about 350 clients with a warm, hearty holiday meal.
“For many, the holidays can be a very lonely time of the year, but we want to do all that we can to make sure the less fortunate enjoy a Thanksgiving dessert,” says Bobby Jucker, bakery co-owner and fifth generation baker. “We have been blessed with so much, and we try to give back whenever we can, and as a bakery, we are able to provide a little slice of home for those in need.”
During the Slice of Home campaign, Three Brothers Bakery will be donating a slice of one of its famous pies for every whole pie sold in-store. With options like apple, cherry, chocolate fudge pecan, award-winning pecan and pumpkin pie, customers can purchase their favorite kind of pie, and a slice will be given to Star of Hope.
“Partnerships like the Slice of Home program with Three Brothers Bakery are very important to our organization, particularly around the holidays,” says Scott Arthur, Director of Public Relations for Star of Hope Mission. “These pie slices will provide a sweet ending to the holiday meal, and we are thrilled to be able to serve a slice to every client who attends Thanksgiving dinner.”

About Three Brothers Bakery
The traditions of Three Brothers Bakery began in Chrzanow, Poland circa 1825, and were preserved despite the family’s concentration camp imprisonment during the Holocaust. Their miraculous liberation, and subsequent move to Houston, brought Eastern European scratch baking traditions to 4036 S. Braeswood Blvd, 12393 Kingsride Lane, and 4606 Washington Ave where the owners are now proud to call themselves “memory makers who just happen to be bakers.” Perfecting the process for almost 200 years, each day the fifth generation bakers produce mostly dairy-free breads and pastries, cookies, a full line of specialty dessert cakes and pies, as well as custom birthday, special occasion, wedding and groom’s cakes using only the highest quality ingredients.
