Special thank you and notice to troops overseas:
One of the hardest parts of our 2021 closure is knowing that we will be unable to fufill cookie requests from services members overseas and for our local veterans. However, we are beyond grateful to two other charities for taking our military members into their families.
Operation We Care will send care packages free of charge to services members stationed overseas. Please contact them here and include your APO address, dates of deployment, and number of members in your unit.
One Kind Cookie will be providing cookies for our veterans and their Guardians on Honor Flight Tri-State, and for Fisher House at the Cincinnati VA Medical Center. Please consider donating to them and/or volunteering your time to help make cookie deliveries.
Our Bake Me BACK Home Program resonated strongly with our supporters. What began as sending cookies to our military overseas (a worthy program on its own), grew into honoring both active duty military and local veterans. Bake Me BACK Home afforded us and our supporters the opportunity to show our gratitude and support to our men and women serving overseas and to our veterans living right here at home as well. With all three of our Bake Me BACK Home initiatives combined, this program shared 43,152 cookies with both active and inactive military personnel!
Bake Me BACK Home – Our Original Program!
Home is often very far away for men and women serving in our military, but you sent a little taste of “BACK HOME” to service members deployed overseas! You have sent 13,076 cookies to our troops serving overseas. Our goal was to provide that taste of our homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to help our military men and women feel like they are "back home," even if it's just for a moment. Thank you for helping us achieve our goal.
Our expanded program services included local veterans...
