Prep work for a Door County tradition begins next week as Habitat for Humanity volunteers start their fruit cake efforts. Based on a recipe from former Door County Habitat for Humanity board member Sister Mary Louise Shramer, volunteers will mix, pour, and bake approximately 750 fruitcakes over a week-long span in hopes to address affordable housing needs locally. ReStore manager Megan Dietz believes their fruitcake bucks the trend of others that give the holiday treat a bad name.
Interested volunteers can contact Dietz at the Door County Habitat for Humanity offices to schedule a work shift on November 5th, 6th, and 7th.
