Forty-eight volunteers filled the Houston Christian School kitchen last week, whipping up 1,700 pies and raising $8,000 for the school.

Making about 100 pies less than last year, the group hopes that they won’t have any extras, because last year they had to freeze and sell some later in the year, and that was just a pain, said Kim Verbeek, one of the organizers of the pie fund raiser this year.

The willing workers volunteer group has been making and selling pies for 20 years now, a fund raiser for the school that has grown a lot from the 132 pies made that first year.
