MEDFORD, Ore.--We have a follow-up on a story about a record-breaking cinnamon roll we first told you about last month on NewsWatch 12.

You'll remember that massive cinnamon roll was sold at the Pear Blossom Festival for 2 dollars per 8-ounce slice. And now the large roll is helping Southern Oregonians.

The roll weighed in at over 1100 pounds, earned a Guinness World Record, and also brought more than 5,000 dollars to the Teresa McCormick Center, a Medford-based non-profit.

The Center provides education, assistance and connections for those in need.

Teresa McCormick Center Executive Director Amy Belkin says, "We have a supplemental food pantry here, used clothing for work, children’s clothing, we also to taxes, we are an IRS Vita Site, we bought back over 300,000 dollars to the valley this last tax season and everything we do here is free of charge."

The center serves more than 7,000 people in the Rogue Valley.

It is named after a longtime employee on the Harry and David campus.

Years ago, Teresa McCormick found qualified job applicants didn't own closed-toe shoes so she started a donation drive that was able to provide more than 700 pairs of shoes to those in need.

She passed away in 2007 but the center says her legacy of giving back to those in need is only growing.
