A Sweet Way to Perform Community Service - November 2009

 The Jamul Chaparros baking project group found a sweet way to combine learning, baking, and community service.  Last fall at each of their project meetings they baked cookies, some to take home, and some to put in their project leader’s freezer.  Project leader, Mary Bradley, originally wanted to take these extra cookies to the USO; however, when her daughter, Anna Takasugi, told her that one of her co-workers was involved with a group of people who put together care packages to send to the troops overseas, the project took on a slightly different direction.  They now had a goal of sending a half-dozen cookies to 165 servicemen and women.  If you take the time to do the math, you’ll discover this meant baking 82+ dozen cookies.  Since Anna came up with this idea, she was enlisted to help to bake the cookies as well. 

The baking project group consisted of Haley, Jannettie, Jessie, Lindsay, Lindsey, and Rachel.  They helped to bake the following types of cookies:  Chocolate Chip, Holiday M&M Cookies, Dark Chocolate cookies with cherry and vanilla chips, Oatmeal Raisin, Snickerdoodles, and Molasses Crinkles.   165 individual take out boxes containing the cookies were decorated with holiday stickers and a note that read, “Happy Holidays to you!  We love our troops.  These were baked especially for you by the Jamul Chaparros 4-H Club.”   

On Nov. 27th, the cookies were taken to Rancho Bernardo where they were boxed up with the other items that were being shipped by Operation America Supports You and the American Legion Women’s Auxiliary Unit #146.  Operation America Supports You has received several thank you letters from the troops for all the goodies they received, and they have also asked for more cookies!
