Summer Thyme’s helps ESL program

Kudos to Summer Thyme’s, Grass Valley’s beloved local bakery and deli, for recently hosting a musical fundraiser for Partners in English Language Learning.

PiELL is a Nevada County nonprofit whose mission for more than 25 years has been to offer free, one-on-one tutoring to adults learning English as a second language. Summer Thyme’s owner, Amy Cooke, donated a percentage of the proceeds for the day, and local band Purdon’s Crossing donated its eclectic, quirky brand of music, as well as its tips.

In total, the event raised $400 for PiELL; this money will go toward outreach, tutor training and teaching materials. Thank you!

Donna Cobb, program coordinator,

on behalf of board and staff of Partners in English Language Learning
