Because A Life to Live is a non-profit organization, we count on the generous nature of people in Baytown and surrounding communities to help support our efforts.
Glaze Baking Company and its customers are among those who contribute to our cause. A donation container sits at the front desk of the bakery, located at 2803 N. Alexander.
“Since we started doing it, the response has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Joni Glaze, who opened the business in January. “A lot of people are reading about the plight of animals in Baytown and overall, so they are really willing to donate their spare dollars and change. And I don’t take tips. I put them right in there.”
The bakery specializes in baked goods, cakes and desserts, but also serves breakfast and lunch items. Cheesecakes are Joni’s signature item.
At home, Joni and her husband, Clint, enjoy the company of several pit bull rescues and a rescue cat.
“At any given time, we have a myriad of cats,” Joni said. “We’ve also had squirrels, snakes, a ferret that I recently rehomed, and all kinds of things.”
On Saturdays, you will find customers who bring their dogs to the bakery. “We’re very dog friendly,” added Joni, who is fully behind the goal of Baytown becoming a no-kill community.
A Life to Live is always looking for local partners to host one of our donation containers at their business. If you’re able to help out like Joni, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
