Well, we’re not the only ones working hard to deliver the goods on Valentine’s Day.
This year, we offer a special salute to Bomber Girls LRC of Savannah, Georgia. The Bomber Girls spend the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day collecting home-baked cookies to create delicious gift baskets for our troops serving overseas.
The group’s creative call to arms is: “Fire up your ovens to send the troops some Lovin'.”
The tradition started six years ago with 300 dozen cookies finding their ways into the hands and stomachs of men and women serving our country overseas. By 2012, the number of cookie deliveries had skyrocketed to 6,000 dozen!
Baking that many cookies requires a nationwide effort! Debbie Will of Porter County in northwest Indiana contributed dozens of chocolate chip cookies, plus a 2-pound bag of large dog treats, to the Bomber Girls’ campaign.
“I couldn’t think of a better worthwhile cause,” Debbie told The Post-Tribune of Northwest Indiana.
Well said, Debbie! To learn more or pitch in, visit Bomber Girls LRC at www.bombergirlslrc.com.
