Coffee House Holds Bake Sale For Hurricane Relief

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Local efforts are underway to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.

The Well Coffee House in Green Hills hosted "Sweet Relief" Saturday. The bake sale raised money for hurricane relief, and goes directly to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. In addition to the bake sale, several businesses in Green Hills donated 10 percent of their sales to the cause.

"We've had a great crowd today. We had people lining up to buy things before we were even completely set up, and they've been coming in pretty significantly the entire time," said organizer Amanda Saad.

This is the second "Sweet Relief" bake sale that's been held in Nashville.  Two years ago, it raised more than $1,000 for Nashville's flood relief efforts.

If you'd like to help out, a Hurricane Sandy Supply Drive will be Sunday from 9:00 until 5:00 at Bridgestone Arena.

Organizers are working with emergency officials in New York and New Jersey to get much needed supplies.
