I’d like to let you know about the La Crescenta Woman’s Club project: “Operation Cookie” to Honor Hospitalized and Homeless Veterans We would be most grateful if you would consider contributing cookies for hospitalized and homeless veterans as part of this year’s “Operation Cookie,” a joint project: Woman’s Club of South Pasadena and the La Crescenta Woman’s Club. The veterans really enjoy homemade cookies, but donations of quality pre-packaged cookies and especially sugar-free cookies are welcomed.
This year, we will again deliver decorative containers of cookies to hospitalized veterans at local Veteran’s Hospitals and to homeless veterans served by the VA. This will include patients in Spinal Cord Injury facilities; General and post surgery facilities; Nursing, Convalescent and Hospice Care facilities; and the Psychological/PTSD care units. We also provide cookies to the Wounded Warriors Battalion at Camp Pendleton.
Last year, we provided cookies to nearly 2,000 hospitalized and homeless veterans in time for Memorial Day. You may deliver your cookies (minimum of two dozen) to the South Pasadena Clubhouse at 1424 Fremont Avenue between the hours of 9 a.m. and 12 noon, Wednesday, May 24. There will be a curbside “cookie drop off” service beginning at 8 a.m. Alternate drop-off time will be the evening before from 4 until 7 p.m. In lieu of cookies, checks to La Crescenta Woman’s Club-Operation Cookie can be mailed to L.C.W.Club, P.O. Box 8494, La Crescenta, CA 91214.
Thank you in advance for supporting “Operation Cookie” and contributing cookies for our hospitalized and homeless veterans.
