Sweet Art from the Heart

The Brian Morden Foundation in Blair County, which was created to help children battling cancer, is making preparations for a virtual Valentine’s Day event on Saturday, Feb. 13th.

The virtual event will feature Rachel Stoehr, owner of Rachel Bites, who will be teaching people how to decorate the cookies from kits that the foundation is selling.

“I was wanting to do whatever I could to help. You know, I think that we all have people in our lives who have battled cancer, at some point in their lives, and that definitely was the case for me, as well, and thus this has a lot of meaning,” Stoehr said.

Foundation organizers say they hold Valentine’s Day very close to their hearts since Brian died the day after Valentine’s Day in 2003.

Each kit costs $40 and includes 6 cookies, icing, tools needed for decorating, and a card to send to one of the Foundation kids.

The money raised goes toward helping the families of six or seven children, who are currently betting cancer, with travel expenses and other financial needs.

“We have kids that, despite everything, are still battling cancer, and battling everything else in the world at this time. So, we just wanted people to share the love this Valentine’s Day,” said Dawn Morden, President and Co-Founder of the Brian Morden Foundation.

Kits can be ordered online through the Foundation’s website, or by calling 814-931-4635.

The kits will then be available for pickup on Feb. 11th, either at Boro Coffee in Hollidaysburg or the Arts Altoona Building on Sixth Ave in Altoona.

Organizers say this event is being made possible by the generosity of Arts Altoona, Rachel Bites and Martin’s Foods.
