Our First Annual Crossroads-Connection Cookie Party - GREAT SUCCESS! We raised $1,429 in cookie and raffle sales. Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church also took up a “noisy offering” in honor of the Giffords on Sunday and received $608 ($65 in coins) for a total of $2,037 for Crossroads-Connections, enough to support 8 food-insecure children. Thank you all! And a special thanks to Melanie Begley and the team for putting together such a wonderful event.
Leftover Cookies? Yep, there were some, but they didn’t go to waste. Feeding Friends (a local ministry that uses a food truck to take meals to the homeless in our area) was thrilled to have the cookies!
