“Thank you for the extraordinarily beautiful holiday cookies that you prepared and delivered to the Crossroads Rhode Island Family Center. For the fourth year in a row, your group has brightened the holidays for homeless families who are unable to provide their children with the wonderful treats that make the winter holidays so special and memorable.”

A few weeks ago Jen hosted her second Drop In & Decorate® event, with kids and their parents from her MOMS group baking, decorating and donating 200 cookies to the Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center in Columbia, Maryland.
Shari hosted her first Drop In & Decorate® event, delivering cookies for Valentine's Day to Ronald McDonald House at Riley, in Indianapolis. She shared these adorable photos and a report:
Just wanted to thank everyone for their help and participation. I think our little cookie decorators did a wonderful job.
The people at the Ronald McDonald House at Riley were so appreciative. There were a couple of families in the house when we delivered them and they were so excited to have something sweet to melt their troubles away. One family has ten children and one of their girls was under Riley's care.
I had no idea they needed so much help from the community to make things warm and inviting for the families during hard times. You can donate food pantry items, bottled water, make lunch/ dinner, etc.
We donated over 150 cookies and they said they would be surprised if the cookies lasted more than a 24 hours!
Thanks again for your help. This was fun!
Shari, what a wonderful decorating party! Thanks to all of the talented kids and adults who made so many families at Ronald McDonald House feel loved for Valentine's Day.
"Thank you doesn't begin to say how we feel about the beautiful cookies we received today. They are a work of art and a special gift for the women of Abby's House. We will give them out tomorrow at our Mother's Day luncheon. We are so excited to have them as they will add that special touch to the tables and a festive feeling for the day."
