Fresno bakery selling cookies to raise money for firefighters battling Creek Fire

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A local bakery is trying to help first responders and those affected by the Creek Fire the way they know best: by making cookies.

Starting Friday, Eddie's Bakery, located on Herndon and Cedar in northeast Fresno, will be selling donation cookies to raise money as the Creek Fire rages in nearby mountain communities.


Each cookie is $5 and they will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis and the bakery will not be taking orders. The profits will be going to Central Valley fire departments that are battling the blaze, according to the bakery.

The bakery posted that they are sold out for the day on September 11, but that they'll be making hundreds of cookies every day and continuing the fundraiser until September 18.

Eddie's Bakery is open from 6 am to 6 pm from Monday through Saturday and from 7 am to 3 pm.

You can wear a custom t-shirt while eating those cookies.

A man who's from the mountain communities affected by the Creek Fire is selling these new t-shirts to give back to his community.

Scott Machado went to Sierra High School and says he has many friends and family who have lost their homes, businesses, and valuables in the flames.

Each shirt costs $25 and 100 percent of the proceeds are going to be donated to help people get back on their feet.

To buy a shirt, you can call M&M Screen Printing in Clovis or send them a message on their Facebook page.
