Independence Day weekend may still be a few weeks away, but I'm willing to bet many people are already in full-on planning mode. We've got to figure out where we're going to go, which fireworks show to see, and most importantly, what we're going to eat.

The old saying goes; "American as apple pie", right? you plan your 4th of July feast this year, please don't forget to order some pies from the Illinois Machine Shed in Rockford.

Here's why; for every pie ordered starting Monday, June 7 through Friday, July 2, 2021, the Illinois Machine Shed will make a donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. How sweet is that...literally?!?

You want apple pie? Machine Shed's got it. Cherry pie? Machine Shed's is one of the best! Fruit pies not your thing? Try their Snickers or Chocolate Cream Pie!

Here's more whole pie flavors available for pre-ordering according to The Machine Shed's website;

  • German chocolate
  • Pumpkin Cream
  • Pumpkin
  • Strawberry Rhubarb
  • Fresh Strawberry
  • Blueberry
  • Peach
  • Red Raspberry
  • Pecan
  • Apple
  • Cherry

Pre-ordering pies with 24-hours notice can be done online, or by calling The Illinois Machine Shed at 815-229-3276.

The way I see it, you should probably just order a couple of pies from The Machine Shed every week up until July 2nd. Forget the calories you are consuming, and just savor the fact that your sweet tooth cravings are helping some awesome kids battling cancer at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
