On Saturday, Sweet Street Desserts is giving away free dessert (while supplies last) from 12-4pm at FirstEnergy Stadium, home of the Reading Fightin Phils.

“For 41 years, Sweet Street has called Reading, PA home. Giving back to our city has always been our passion; through art and educational programs, community projects” said Sandy Solmon, Sweet Streets’ Founder/CEO.

“While we support hundreds of non-profit organizations locally, this is the first time we are bringing our desserts direct to the public in such an amazing way. It is an opportunity we are all tremendously thankful for and excited about.”

Solomon says safety is her first priority for the event. Volunteers must pass a health screening, adhere to CDC guidelines and be masked at all times.

In addition, attendees must remain in their vehicle, and walk ups are prohibited. Attendees must be masked and avoid contact with our volunteers. Desserts will be distributed in a case, eliminating direct contact.

Vehicles will not be permitted to get in line until 11:30am. All traffic must enter from Route 61, at the intersection of Route 61 and Cathedral St. Dessert distribution will be in the parking lot that runs parallel with North Front Street across from Stadium.

“Desserts provide a moment of sweetness, comfort and joy. This holiday, we are inviting the community to enjoy our desserts with family, share with neighbors or gift to friends. Our hope is to spread a bit of cheer while inspiring others to ‘share sweetness’ any way they can” said Jennifer Matten, Share Sweetness Event Organizer & Sweet Streets’ Marketing Communications Specialist.

The dessert distribution will be random, with 1 case of dessert given to each car; each case ranges from 20-64 portions.

In addition to the giveaway, each attendee will receive 10% off coupons for Café Sweet Street and the Reading Fightin Phils Team Store, which will be open during the Share Sweetness Event.
