MEDFORD, Ore. — On April 10, Wolferman's Bakery in Medford claimed a Guinness World Record for world's largest cinnamon roll at a whopping 1,149.7 lbs. Slices of that epic roll were sold to attendees at this year's Pear Blossom Festival.

Now the proceeds from those sales have been presented to a local non-profit. On Thursday, Harry & David (owners of Wolferman's) presented the Teresa McCormick Center (TMC) with a check for $5,421.

Granted, TMC is closely associated with Harry & David. The non-profit was founded in the honor of Teresa McCormick, an employee of the Medford-based company who coordinated donations of things like decent shoes for underprivileged—but otherwise qualified—job applicants in the Rogue Valley.

According to TMC, McCormick was able to collect 700 pairs of shoes for those in need.

When McCormick passed away in 2007, Harry & David founded the TMC. Now the Center functions as a place to help people in difficult circumstances to get back on their feet—providing a computer lab and unique assistance or resources to each person who comes their way.

Erin McMenomy of Harry & David said that TMC currently has more than 7,000 clients—and the Center connects them with food, clothing, toiletries, or financial management and job placement tools, depending on the circumstances.
