Holiday Guide: Trudy's Wish List



Sweets from Sweet Miss Giving’s
Chicago House and Social Service Agency, which provides supportive housing and case management for formerly homeless people with HIV (and, in some cases, their families), has adapted its services as the epidemic has changed. With people living longer, staying healthier, and returning to the work force, Chicago House created the Sweet Miss Giving’s bakery to provide job training for clients, and its products raise money for the agency (full disclosure: I was once a volunteer, then a paid staff member at Chicago House — many years ago, before Sweet Miss Giving’s was established). Brownies, cookies, muffins, pound cakes, and other goodies make wonderful edible gifts. A basket of renowned chef Art Smith’s favorites goes for $150, and there are many other choices. ( for orders to be shipped nationally; for delivery within Chicago)
