The long standing Cookies for the Troops campaign will still be held this year, but with a few adjustments to reflect the COVID-19 safety measures.
The cookie drive allows the community to donate homemade or store bought cookies and other treats to men and women who will be on duty over the holidays. This is a fun and easy way for people to show their love and appreciation for those that go above and beyond for our country.
This year, instead of dropping cookie donations off at the Chamber of Commerce, Bluewater Real Estate and two other locations will be taking donations.
The box for donations is located right in the Bluewater Real Estate sales office foyer. Donations can be collected from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday from now through December 16th.
Cookies and other goodies for the military members should be placed in Ziplock bags, 4 to 6 cookies per bag.
