One Staten Island bakery is whipping up a cake pop with a purpose.
You can still catch a fundraiser to support mental health at Mark’s Bake Shoppe along Richmond Road this weekend. It’s one of several pop-up bake sales in the U.S. and other countries organized by the non-profit called The Depressed Cake Shop. All with the goal of spreading awareness about mental health issues.
Owner Mark Intoccia says “a lot of people suffer from depression, anxiety. Anytime you can draw some attention to a good cause and help some good people out it’s good to do.”
Proceeds from the birthday cake flavored treats will go towards the Pride Center of Staten Island and it’s counseling services.
