If you live in or near Penticton, you already know what you’re going to have for breakfast on Saturday morning.

How about a snack while you’re there?

Not only will you fill your belly with delicious hot rolls Riverside Village COBS Breadbut you will also help rescue animals find new homes.

That’s because $2 from every six-pack of hot buns sold Saturday will go to Critteraid Animal Sanctuary in Summerland as part of the second annual Doughnation Day.

Doughnation Day’s goal is to raise $5,000 for Critteraid, which is run by volunteers and donations. It started 30 years ago as a cat rescue and has provided shelter, medical care, healing and love to thousands of cats and various farm animals. Critteraid also markets itself as an educational institution that invites people to learn about animals in a way that will change their perspective on themselves and the world around them.

COBS Bread Riverside Village has been accepting donations in the store since March 3, and donations can be done online here if you can’t make it to Penticton on Saturday.

For those who can make it, Critteraid volunteers will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to answer questions about what they do and why it matters. There will also be an information tent and games for all participants.

Most importantly, there are four flavors of hot buns being sold on Saturday to raise money for everyone’s furry friends:
• traditional, which contains raisins and currents
• orange cranberry
• Apple Cinnamon
• the new triple chocolate, made up of dark, milk and white chocolate.

COBS Bread Riverside Village plans to sell all the hot buns it makes on Saturdays, but even if it doesn’t, it will make sure its food doesn’t go to waste.

“We bake fresh produce every day, and when we close at the end of the day, we donate any leftover baked goods to local charities, schools and community groups,” said Jasel Peters, owner of COBS Bread Riverside Village.
