Join Us for Cookies for the Troops

 

Bluewater Real Estate is proud to be an official drop-off location for the Carteret County Chamber of Commerce’s annual Cookies for the Troops.

The Military Affairs Committee (MAC) collects and delivers donated home-baked or store-bought cookies to service members who are stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, Marine Corps Auxiliary Landing Field Bogue, and Coast Guard Stations Fort Macon and Emerald Isle North Carolina.

We invite you to drop off your favorite cookies to be included in our donation. Drop off times are between December 13-15, 2021 9 am – 5 pm. Our drop off location is at our Bluewater Real Estate Office 200 Mangrove Drive, Emerald Isle

Cookies do not need to be individually packaged as MAC Committee members will package a selection in each bag. If your cookies are allergy-free, such as no nuts or gluten-free, please mark that on your donation.

Holiday cards are also appreciated. The treats will be delivered on Thursday, December 16. Donations will not be accepted after December 15. A big THANK YOU to our dedicated Military Affairs Committee members; Pegi Davis, Cathy Gainey, Sharon Salmon, and Kristie Elliott.
