Group collects homemade cookies for kids

ADDISON COUNTY — A group that collected homemade Christmas cookies for homeless kids in Chittenden County last year has expanded its efforts into Addison County this year.
Did you love mom’s Christmas cookies when you were just little? What if you had spent Christmas in a shelter instead? This cookie drive requests that people making homemade cookies double their batch, and the extra cookies will be delivered to local shelters housing families in crisis on Christmas
The only rule is they have to be homemade cookies (no raisin!). It’s an effort to give kids and parents spending Christmas in shelters a little feeling of being home for the holiday.
How to help: Bake cookies! It’s the easiest and most fun volunteering you can do. Cookies can be dropped at Middlebury Natural Foods Co-Op and Bristol’s Almost Home Market on this Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 21 and 22, and will be delivered to children at the John Graham Shelter in Vergennes and the Charter House Shelter in Middlebury.
