PTA Bake Sale FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions about Woodburn PTA’s Election Day Bake Sale

What can I bring?

You can make items, or you can donate store-bought items. Cookies, cupcakes,  brownies, croissants, muffins, pound cake, are some examples.

Please sign-up here to let us know what items you plan to bring.

How do I prepare my baked goods?  

Individually wrap or package things to be sold for $1-$2 each, size depending (e.g. 2 cookies, single brownies and bars can be $1 each; larger pieces or decorated cupcakes might be $2)

You can label the cost, or the Bake Sale volunteers can do so.

You can also donate whole cakes as some people may buy things for their offices. However, individual sells better. These might sell for $3-$10 each, depending on size and time of day.

Label anything special, such as stuff like gluten-free, includes peanuts, etc.

Where, When, How can I drop off my goods?

On Monday (day before the Bake Sale):

  • Drop-off your items at the school front office on Monday during office hours. Be sure to label these that they’re for the PTA bake sale.

On Tuesday morning (day of the Bake Sale):

  • Bring your items as early as possible Tuesday morning, preferably between 6am-7:30am. (Most voters in this area vote early).

Coordinate with another parent and deliver your items to them to drop off.

Contact the Bake Sale coordinator if you need to make any special arrangements.

When is the Bake Sale the busiest?

In the morning.  However, if the weather is bad, and it’s not a “big” election, business will slow down by 9:30am.
