Bakers trapped for two days amid Harvey make treats for victims

A group of Texas bakers who were trapped inside their shop for two days during Tropical Storm Harvey made hundreds of delicious pastries for flood victims.

Workers at El Bolillo Bakery in Houston baked several trays of pan de dulce or traditional Mexican sweet bread after realizing there was no way out of the bakery.

Instead, the team of four bakers worked tirelessly over the weekend to help their community.

“Hurricane Harvey pan dulce we are going to take to those in need. Bakers were stuck inside for two days!” the bakery wrote on its Facebook page on Monday.

The shop was closed until further notice but reopened Tuesday.

Brian Alvarado, the bakery’s manager, told The Independent, the bakers used 4,000 pounds of flour to make the treats and had delivered them to emergency centers across the city.

People on social media praised the bakers for their humble gestures.

“Thank you for being such wonderful humans,” a Facebook user wrote. “We need more like you!”

“You shared so much love to those who desperately needed it,” user Mikie Barton wrote. “Thank you to you wonderful bakers for sharing your wonderful talents with those who need caring so much right now.”

“That’s how it’s done! Thank you!” another user one wrote.
