It’s our THANK YOU
to our veterans!
No cookie goes to waste. While each year leaves us with extras for us to find fitting homes, 2016 was special and left us with a mission that would go beyond our expectations when we walked through those doors.
In 2016 our extra cookies made their way to the Cincinnati VA Medical Center. We asked the gentlemen with Volunteer Services how often they received something like this. ALMOST NEVER was the reply. Following our departure, we made a social media posting in which we pledged:
WE ARE GOING TO CHANGE THIS!
Sometimes our visits are quick, some consist of a table set up inside the front entrance, sometimes, we visit the various waiting areas and make our way down the main hall and before we know it, all of our large stash of cookies will be gone – happily accepted by those who have given so much for our country. We sit and talk. We listen. We enjoy this time and the companionship.
While every visit is a bit different, each has one thing in common and that is that we send extra cookies specifically for the floors at the hospital where they are most needed – for those who struggle with PTSD and other related issues. Reminding them that they are thought of and that people care is so very important so we never overlook this important part of our delivery.
Regardless of our how visits look and how the cookies are distributed, one thing is for sure – everyone we come into contact with is full of smiles and appreciative.
It looks like a cookie but it is really a really, really big TANGO YANKEE for your service to this great country of ours.
Join us in honoring our country’s veterans. Donate in honor or memory of someone special or be more hands on with a delivery of your own. Contact us and let us help set you up for a special visit of your own.
