Continuing the annual tradition, the Swiss chapter of the John D.V. Salvador Foundation opened the festive season by baking, decorating and selling Grittibänz to church goers in Widen near Zurich. Grittibänz are a traditional Swiss Christmas cookie make of sweet bread dough. This year, over 200 of the festive little men were baked.
On December 7th, eight Swiss chapter volunteers manned the stalls to sell all of the Grittibänz, raising more than $2,500USD, which will be used for the San Martin de Porres funding.
Thanks again to the Swiss chapter for their generosity!
