WEST SPRINGFIELD — Cathie Cappa, owner of Auntie Cathie’s Kitchen, will donate all proceeds from sales of her Lemon Love cookies to the Cancer House of Hope in West Springfield, one of 70 Center for Human Development (CHD) programs.
As a cancer survivor, Cappa has first-hand understanding of what others who are facing a cancer diagnosis are going through. So, for the entire month of April, Auntie Cathie’s Kitchen, a café and bakery located at 217 Elm St. in West Springfield, is selling its newly created Lemon Love cookies to benefit the Cancer House of Hope.
“I wholeheartedly believe that sharing food is an act of love,” Cappa said. “I invite you to feel loved as you help support the Cancer House of Hope.”
Auntie Cathy’s Kitchen is a dedicated gluten-free bakery and vintage café. Breakfast and lunch are served Tuesday through Saturday using fresh, local ingredients.
CHD, founded in 1972, is a CARF-accredited organization providing a broad range of community-oriented human services to 17,000 children, adolescents, adults, and families each year. The organization is dedicated to promoting, enhancing, and protecting the dignity and welfare of people in need.
The Cancer House of Hope works to enhance the lives of people with cancer and those who care about them by providing emotional, educational, social, and spiritual support. It provides free-of-charge cancer support services and relaxation programs for those who face this devastating disease.
