Call for Homemade Cookies
This year Operation Christmas Cookie is starting its ninth year of sending packages of homemade cookies to troops overseas during the holiday, coordinated by Boy Scout Pack 6064 and Daisy Troop 1227. Over 3,400 packages of cookies have been sent to service men and women overseas since 2007! This year, packages will be sent to Wounded Warriors as well as a Navy unit stationed on the USS San Antonio. If you would like to donate cookies for this event, they will be packing cookies at 5 p.m. on Friday, December 2, at the HAYC3 Armory, located at 80 Church Street in Hoosick Falls, N.Y. There will be a table in the Perry Room for earlier drop offs. No special containers are necessary; cookies can be dropped off in ziplock bags or disposable containers. Firm or crisp cookies travel best. Fudge, wrapped candy or gum are great too. Monetary donations are always welcome to help with shipping and supply costs. For more information, call 518-686-9050.
