Red Cross Holiday Cookie Drive

The Cookie Drive is one of AWA's longest standing holiday traditions. In Early December volunteers bake and deliver cookies for the Hong Kong Red Cross, who then distribute them to 21 Red Cross Hospital Schools serving 2,000 handicapped and hospitalized children. 

This year we are asking for bakers to prepare one or more batches of the following:

• Sugar cookies – decorated or plain

• Oatmeal cookies

• Gingerbread men – decorated or plain 

Please also take note of the following restrictions:

• No chocolate

• No nuts

• Use half the amount of sugar given in standard recipes

And of course, if you want to participate in our cookie drive but don’t have time to bake, you can buy some cookies to donate – all cookies are appreciated.

 Packaging:

  • Cookies to be packed in disposable containers, such as Gladware as the containers will not be returned. Cookies not in airtight containers will not be used.
  • Keep in plastic containers for better hygiene, freshness and easy delivery.
  • Do not package individually.
  • Write the number of cookies on the lid.

Cookies to be delivered to the following drop offs: December 3rd and December 4th up to 3pm

We hope we will get many holiday bakers for this amazing event.  OUR GOAL IS 3000 COOKIES!

The Difference We Make

Baking cookies is an American tradition, not practiced by local families. The Red Cross says it makes the children and their families feel the love and generosity and it adds a special touch to holiday festivities.
