Positively 3rd Street Cooperative Bakery says its mixer needs to be replaced immediately, but the slowdown in sales due to the pandemic is preventing them from buying a new one.  They launched a $25,000 GoFundMe campaign on Friday and they had already raised more than $14,000 by Monday afternoon.

"It's just amazing.  Honestly, we're so thankful.  We've needed to replace this for a long time... and now that we actually have to replace it and things have been slow, it's so nice to have the community support us,” said Dana Langlee, a member of the cooperative that owns the bakery.

Some of the money will that’s raised also be used to pay workers whose hours were reduced and fund the bakery's free school lunch packs.

Donations to the campaign can be made at www.gofundme.com/f/s2dkv-positively-3rd-street-bakery-needs-your-help.
