Local churches and charities are giving back this holiday season in a sweet way.
Cookie Walks are popping up all over town just in time for the holidays. Guests grab a box, and a plastic glove to have their pick of dozens of home – made cookies, fudge and other holiday staples.
At Saint Patrick’s Residence, guest flocked to the famous toffee.
“The sisters began making toffee and that was the cincher, we have people lining up wanting the sister’s toffee. It’s become a tradition now and has become very, very popular as you can see,” said Regina Millington.
This is the 15th year for the St. Pats walk, where visitors can get some shopping done at the boutique, purchase pre- packaged treats, or pick out a box of their own, from melted snowmen to reindeer cookies.
All proceeds go back to the church.
“It’s a good feeling, who doesn’t love the smell of cookies in their house and then to bring them to someone, and as somebody just said to me, did you ever meet a cookie you didn’t like? So it works and it does bring that seasonal moment to it,” said Millington.
Across town at 5th Avenue Station A.D.O.P.T. held their holiday cookie walk, with sweet treats for everyone.
“We have dog treats that are nutritional, I noticed we even have vegan cookies, so really something for everyone here at our holiday cookie walk,” said Sandy Boston.
Families made a day out of the event, picking treats to leave out for Santa and his reindeer or to snack on themselves.
The money raised will go towards the well – being of the animals at the A.D.O.P.T. Shelter.
