Every Friday Special Kneads and Treats Bakery donates 180 assorted cookies for us to give our clients. (Pictured, bakery employee Ian holding this week’s cookies.) Along with their meats, meals, and other groceries, each of our clients receives one perfect, delicious SK&T cookie.
It’s been fun for us to observe the absolute love/love relationship people have with these cookies.
A married father of four, quietly waiting for his groceries, completely immersed in his cookie. A solemn little girl, carefully selecting just the right cookie for each person in her large family. Two little boys, noting we’re about to close and asking wide-eyed if they can have the last two cookies. (Of course they can!) An adult caregiver of an elderly mother, relating that the very first thing her mother does upon receiving her groceries is to locate her cookie among the bags and eat it up.
Thanks, Special Kneads and Treats, for making our clients’ lives a little brighter!
We purchase beans and rice in 25-50 lb. bags and repackage in smaller bags. Thanks to leader Michelle and three delightful and hard-working young men from the Hi-Hope Center who packaged up many many bags of rice and beans for us today.
