Local business makes donation to Troy Main Street

TROY — On Aug. 26, Bakehouse Bread & Cookie Company presented Andrea Keller, executive director of Troy Main Street, with a check for $4,467 to help support the efforts of the downtown organization.

The donation was made possible through a special barbecue event designed by Bakehouse to support the non-profit organization. All proceeds from this event were donated to Troy Main Street. As a merchant located in the heart of downtown on the square, Bakehouse Bread & Cookie Company has a great appreciation for the efforts of Troy Main Street throughout the year.

Since the coronavirus pandemic began in March, local economic development, revitalization and tourism organizations have been impacted by loss of memberships, donations and dwindling alternative funding resources. Troy Main street manages downtown Troy’s community events like First Fridays special events and Fridays on Prouty Concerts as well as seasonal events like the Hometown Halloween celebration and the Grand Illumination during the holiday season.

“Troy Main Street is so grateful to the Bakehouse for their generosity throughout this time,” said Keller. “We really appreciate how Bakehouse always puts community first. We feel blessed to have them in downtown Troy.”

Bakehouse Bread & Cookie Company will be hosting an additional barbecue event this month, on Sept. 19, and will benefit Troy’s Overfield Tavern Museum. Bakehouse will be preparing takeout dinners that will put diners in the mood for fall and cooler weather. Each dinner will include a Duroc pork chop, corn salad, cornbread, and hot baked apples. In addition, diners will have the option to purchase a 32-ounce Overfield Tavern mini-growler (empty or filled with locally sourced apple cider). Meals will be served curbside at the Overfield Tavern Museum by volunteers in historic costume.
