The Center in Brainerd is seeking 12-15 volunteers to help every Thursday morning in making its cake doughnuts.

The Center's kitchen manager is Connie Ogilvie, she leads the doughnut crew and is looking for a few more volunteers to add into the rotation.

Volunteer duties vary and training is provided. Volunteer jobs include mixing the dough, operating donut machines, maintaining oil levels of the machines, frosting; spread or dipped, filling trays and waiting on customers. It is an early morning volunteer job, doughnut machine operators begin at 2 a.m., but are done by 6:30 a.m.; frosters arrive at 4 a.m. and are done by 9:30 a.m.

The Center's doughnut crew makes about 250 to 350 dozen doughnuts every Thursday morning. Businesses or individuals may have standing orders that are boxed and ready for pick up at their specified time. The public also may stop in from 6:30-10 a.m. and custom pick doughnuts.

Doughnuts are $7 a dozen, $3.50 half dozen or 50 cents each. Selling doughnuts is a fundraiser for The Center.
