Cookies from the Heart


Cookies from the HeartNothing beats the smell of homemade cookies baking in the oven to remind you of home. Cookies from the Heart volunteers plan their treat, purchase the ingredients and bake in our kitchens so when the families return from a day at the hospital, they can help themselves to a treat or two.


Cookies from the Heart volunteers work in a group (up to 10 people) to make any type of treat, from cookies and brownies, to rice crispy treats or puppy chow. We ask that volunteers make four to five dozen of the treat they decide.
