Acts of Kindness: Volunteer delivers homemade desserts to senior center

PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) -

While most of us are asleep, it’s very likely Dorothy Whipple is awake, in the kitchen and baking some scrumptious dessert to give away.

She has a passion for baking pies and cakes from scratch, with recipes she just remembers. Five years ago, when Dorothy noticed the meals in the Senior Program at her Church were missing dessert, she volunteered to bake something.

Since then, she’s been preparing desserts in her home and delivering them to the Senior Program at Petersburg’s Tabernacle Baptist Church once a week.

A Church spokesperson says Dorothy has a giving spirit and never asks for reimbursement for the expense of buying ingredients to make a variety of sweet treats. Church member Dave Brower wanted Dorothy’s generosity and baking skills to be recognized, so he nominated her for our Acts of Kindness honors.

We surprised Dorothy at church with a $300 token of appreciation!
