Christmas Cookies for the Homeless 2018


Once again we are baking cookies for the homeless in and around Baltimore and Washington DC. This project has been going on for years and last year we were able to assemble 100 cookie trays (50 cookies on each tray) for the homeless. These cookies are delivered to the shelters along with Back packs on Christmas Eve. The back packs contain a sweatshirt, long underwear, hat, mittens, and a few other necessities.

This is just a small way we can bring brightness to those in need.

NOTE: The cookie drive will be before Christmas again!
