Cookies are needed for hospitalized, homeless and special needs veterans as part of the annual “Operation Cookie” project to be held on Wednesday, May 24th at the Woman’s Club of South Pasadena. The veterans really enjoy home-made cookies, but donations of local bakery and pre-packaged cookies are also welcome. Sugar free cookies are especially appreciated.
Volunteers are needed to help receive and sort cookies, and to work on the “assembly line,” where cookies are individually packed into decorative containers labeled with a special thank you to the veterans for their military service. Help is also needed to load and transport cartons of cookies to VA hospitals and Centers.
The cookies will be delivered to Veteran’s Hospitals, to the Wounded Warriors Battalion at Camp Pendleton, to Military Women in Need, the Foundation for Women Warriors, to the Jimmy Miller Foundation in Manhattan Beach that provides ocean therapy for veterans, to homeless and special needs veterans, and to other veteran groups.
You may deliver your home baked, quality packaged or sugar free cookies (minimum of two dozen) to the Clubhouse at 1424 Fremont Avenue between the hours of 7:00 am and 11:30am, Wednesday, May 24th. Alternate delivery time is the evening before (4pm–7 pm). Convenient curbside service available both days.
