It’s so exciting for me to know that this fun and worthwhile event continues to spread across the 50 states and Canada and it’s about to start again for the holiday season.
We’re based in Rhode Island. This will be the 8th year of cookies-for-donation in my kitchen. We are year-round, not just at the holidays. But holidays are a great time to get people together.
I’m not a baker – in fact, I’m baking-challenged! So, really, anyone can do this.
There’s a free guide with everything you need to know to host your own party, download on our web side (www.dropinanddecorate.org)
Before the end of this year, the 10,000th cookie will be decorated and donated. Where???
December 4 is National Cookie Day.
Cookies make people smile, and bring a bit of happiness to people in difficult circumstances.
If you’re interested in this cookie donation and would like to participate, here’s how:
The idea behind Drop In & Decorate® is simple: bake some cookies; gather a group of family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, your worship group or book group to decorate the cookies together; donate the cookies to a nonprofit agency serving basic human needs in your own community.
It’s a simple idea in a complicated world, and something anyone can do.
If you’d like to host your own Drop In & Decorate® event, Pillsbury and Wilton would like to help.
Pillsbury has donated 50 VIP coupons, worth $3.00 each, off any Pillsbury product — including sugar cookie mix, icing and flour — to be distributed, first come, first served, while supply lasts, to anyone who plans to host a Drop In & Decorate event (max. 5 coupons per person). And we’ll include a Comfort Grip cookie cutter, donated by Wilton, while our supply lasts.
Write to lydia AT ninecooks DOT com for more info on how to get your free coupons and cookie cutters.
So, how about joining in on the fun of making others feel good?
