What: A cookie party to benefit Loving Food Resources.
Where: Kenilworth Presbyterian Church, 123 Kenilworth Road.
When: Friday, Dec. 14, 6-8 p.m. Bring four dozen cookies. Info: http://avl.mx/nv or http://www.lovingfood.org.
Why: Eating 600 pounds of homemade cookies would give even Cookie Monster a bellyache, so why not share the wealth with Loving Food Resources? The local nonprofit will transform the Kenilworth Presbyterian Church fellowship hall into a cookie factory with community members on the conveyer belt. At least 150 boxes will overflow with treats to be distributed to Loving Food Resources clients living with HIV/AIDS or residing in home hospice care.
Boxes will be provided, so all you need to do is bring four-dozen cookies (homemade is encouraged but store-bought are welcome too). It's a party as well as a volunteer opportunity, so there will be plenty of treats to eat while packing up the cookies and cold milk to wash it down. Kids are invited to this family event, as long as they can keep their hands off the cookies. So put on a Christmas sweater and check out Loving Food Resources. Maybe a cookie party is all you need to put volunteering on your New Year's resolution list.
