Holiday Treats for Refugees

Our Story

Hi!  We are three generations of women, Pam, Kasey, Alexa and Sienna who love to cook and eat.  We also want to make a difference to those who are not as blessed as we are.

We want to take the holiday baking off of your hands this year! Let us make an assortment of cookies for you to give to friends and neighbors this holiday season. Our profits will go directly to Lifting Hands International, a nonprofit that provides vital services (food, shelter, clothing, classes) to 500+ refugees at Serres Refugee Camp in northern Greece. These Yazidi refugees have suffered horror at the hands of ISIS. Many barely making it out of their country before ISIS arrived. They have lost loved ones from abduction and torture. As Somali-British poet Warsan Shire wrote, "No one puts their children in a boat unless the water is safer than the land." This organization was started by my daughter Lindsey's friend,        .

We hope we can raise money to provide food, clothing and shelter to help these refugees.  

On December 19th and 21st we will be baking up a storm in our kitchen. We will have a variety of delicious cookies and treats,  wrapped nicely, for you to deliver to friends, family and neighbors -- but you may want to keep them for yourself!  We will offer almost Swig sugar cookies, Rocky Road bars, Christmas Crack (it's that addicting) and Lemon Bars.  You can order just one thing or a combo packaged on a large shiny red platter for $12.00.

How you can help?

1. Order a plate/plates of cookies from 12/2-12/21 - $12 per plate minimum - we will gladly accept more. Click "DONATE NOW" and leave a comment telling us how many plates you would like and your preferred delivery date. We will deliver in Severance and Windsor area. If you are further away let's meet halfway! We will confirm your delivery date/time via email (pick up option available too!)
