Acts of Kindness – Anita’s Famous Rolls
Support from Local Bakery Means So Much and Tastes So Good!
Acts of Kindness ~ Big and Small ~ Every Day ~ All Year Long
Starting a new business during the pandemic was certainly brave and unusual, but Anita’s Famous Rolls at 7715 NW Prairie View Road in the Kansas City Northland opened on September 12, 2020. And, from that day on, nonprofits in the KC Northland have benefited.
From her childhood, Anita, who owns Anita’s Famous Rolls, has been interested in helping others and has volunteered her time and talents. She has always had a special interest and concern for first responders and for the elderly. And, for years, she has been known for the wonderful cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls she bakes.
On the day before Anita was interviewed for this article, she had taken the three dozen of her famous cinnamon rolls that had not sold to the KCFD Station #4 on 64th Street. She regularly donates to local police departments, fire departments, senior centers, schools (esp. Parkhill), medical facilities, as well as to families in need.
Anita made this post not long ago on the bakery’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/Anitasrolls, “If there is anybody struggling financially who would like some yummy homemade dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, cookies, muffins, etc..; we have a lot of baked goods that were made yesterday that I would like to give away. If you know of a family in need, come in and pick some up.”
Prior to opening the bakery, Anita worked for Home Instead Senior Care and had become acquainted with the Northland Shepherd’s Center (NSC) and all the vital senior services that it provides. When building out the new Center, NSC consulted with Anita several times on the kitchen project.
Because of this relationship, NSC’s clients regularly benefit from Anita’s generosity and get to enjoy a variety of wonderful bakery items. Kelley Creek, NSC Community Aging Specialist, says that it is “always a treat when Anita makes a visit to NSC and brings items from her bakery. Our clients are blessed that NSC has such support from a local small business.”
Please show your appreciation for Anita’s support of NSC by buying from her bakery. Anita’s Famous Rolls is open Wednesday through Sunday from 7am to 2pm. Customers can come into the bakery, call ahead to 816-719-4422 to place orders, and/or order online at anitasfamousrollsorder.com. You can also now buy Anita’s bakery items on Amazon as well as Etsy!
