Home baking is a special inclusion in the Christmas hampers.  We hope to include one dozen cookies or squares to each hamper.  That means we need 450 packaged dozens of cookies or bars.  If you are able to help please let me know and how many dozens you are able to donate.  This is a great activity for community groups or families!

We hope that you can join us for some of these activities! It is so much fun and it really means a lot to those who will receive these blessings.
