Commando Cookie Drive - Hurlburt Spouses' Club
It is that time of year already and we need your support! The Hurlburt Spouses' Club is hosting the 2022 Commando Cookie Drive Monday 5 December. With the support of the Hurlburt Field Chapel and individuals and organizations in our community, we will be baking and collecting cookies to create wonderful holiday treat bags for our airmen who live in the dorms. We want to share some holiday cheer with them. This little taste of home during the holidays is our way of showing them our appreciation for all they do.
Our goal is to collect at least 1250 dozen home-baked (or bakery made) cookies, that's a minimum of 15,000 cookies! While this is a lofty goal, we can do it with the help of our community! We will also accept donations of individually wrapped bags of candy and candy canes to include in the treat bags. Cookie and candy drop off will be Sunday 4 December from 5-7pm and Monday 5 December from 7-10am at the Hurlburt Field Chapel.
An added bonus to the fun of this event will be the award for the top unit contributions. The top unit contribution will receive a donation from the Hurlburt Spouses' Club toward its 2022 holiday party. While we are looking for a large quantity of cookies, quality is our goal. We look forward to seeing which unit bakes the most yummy cookies for our troops. Meanwhile, start organizing baking parties with family and friends, collecting supply contributions, and dusting off your holiday cookbook (or let Pillsbury & Betty Crocker do all the hard work)!
Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Cookies should be dropped off in a disposable container. Aluminum pans or shallow boxes work best to keep the cookies from breaking or crumbling. Please keep in mind the sturdier the cookie, the better it will hold up in the treat bag too. Please avoid cookies that are too soft (they tend to smash or stick together) and those that are too brittle. Cookies with set icing are welcome; however, other icing will cause the cookies to stick together when packaged. We know you will be working hard and putting a lot of love into these cookies. We don't want to lose any of them! If you have any questions, feel free to message our Commando Cookie Drive Facebook page or email Wendy at [email protected] Thank you!
