The Cookie Drive is one of AWA’s longest standing holiday traditions. This year, we will need your cookies by December 3 so we can deliver to the HK Red Cross, who will then distribute them to 21 Red Cross Hospital Schools for their Christmas parties. The kids love our cookies, especially the decorated sugar cookies and gingerbread men. The children and their families love this tradition as they feel a generosity and warmth of spirit from the cookies we donate each year.
This year to make it easier for bakers we ask that you bake one or more batches of the following:
- Sugar cookies - decorated or plain- (using half the sugar required in recipe)
- Gingerbread men – (using less sugar) decorated or plain
And, of course, if you want to participate in our cookie drive but don’t have time to bake then you can buy some cookies to donate - All cookies are appreciated as long as they do not contain peanut butter, nuts, chocolate, cream, fruit or jam!
We ask that you pack the home baked cookies in tupperware boxes which makes transporting such large quantities much easier and also keeps the cookies from crumbling. PLEASE MARK THE NUMBER OF COOKIES ON THE CONTAINER.
