A local lad away at university has some heated plans for the holidays – baking bread.
Chatham’s William Shepherd, 21, is a University of Waterloo student with a newfound hobby. When he comes home for the holidays, he plans on baking bread and donating 20 per cent of the proceeds to the United Way.
The Political Science, History, and International Studies student says after living and growing up in Chatham-Kent, he has always known that this is a community that supports each other. That’s why he has decided to give back to the community through a now sold out bread sale.
He says he has chosen for proceeds to support hunger and mental health-related projects and programs in Chatham-Kent. While he has sold out of pre-orders for bread, anyone who wants to contribute to his fundraiser can make a cash donation.
