Christmas may be nearly two months away, but Grand Island Area Habitat for Humanity wants to get you in the mood now.
On December 2, the housing program will hold it's Christmas Cookie Walk. Over 10,000 cookies are needed for this annual event that sells donated holiday cookies by the pound, with proceeds building homes in the area.
Because so many of the usual bakers have switched from landlines to cell phones, it's been harder for the organization to reach their regular volunteers. That's why Habitat is asking for your help.
About 200 bakers are needed to hit the 10,000 cookie goal. Yet, so far the organization has just half the commitments needed. Habitat is looking for bakers who can make between 4 and 6 doz holiday cookies. Buyers are looking for treats to give as gifts or share at gatherings, so "every day" cookies tend to get passed over. Colorful, fancy or unique cookies are the best.
If you, your organization or business can help, please contact Dana or Megan at 308-385-5510 or email@example.com.
The Christmas Cookie Walk is scheduled for Sunday, December 2 at St. Pauls Lutheran Church in Grand Island. The sale will be from 1-2:30 p.m. in the church's Family Life Center.
