Ryann Schade created Ryann’s Kneady Dough because her taste treats were popular, and the Danbury School District student wanted to create a foundation to help those in need during the holiday season. Her pumpkin rolls were a hit around Thanksgiving, but the COVID-19 pandemic upset her apple cart when it came to sales of cookies and her other “kneady” goodies.
Ryann ended up at the Salvation Army in Port Clinton, because she liked giving to the Red Kettle bell ringers whenever she saw them. Last week, Ryann presented Director Maureen Saponari a check for $400 to help many local families in need this Christmas.
“Ryann is a wonderful young lady, and she certainly has the skills to create wonderful confections. And the generous spirit to help folks in the community that might be in need during the holiday season,” said Saponari.
