‘Operation Cookie’ Seeks Volunteers, Treats

Cookies are needed for hospitalized, homeless and special-needs veterans as part of the annual “Operation Cookie” project on Wednesday, May 22, at the Woman’s Club of South Pasadena located at 1424 Fremont Ave.
The veterans prefer homemade cookies, but donations of local bakery and prepackaged cookies are also welcome. Sugar-free cookies are especially appreciated.
Volunteers also are needed to help receive and sort cookies, and to work on the “assembly line,” where cookies are individually packed into decorative containers labeled with a special “thank you” to the veterans for their military service. Help is also needed to load and transport cartons of cookies to Veterans Affairs hospitals and centers.
The cookies will be delivered to veteran’s hospitals, the Wounded Warriors Battalion West at Camp Pendleton, Military Women In Need, and the Jimmy Miller Foundation in Manhattan Beach, which provides ocean therapy for veterans, homeless and special-needs veterans, and other veteran groups. Support is more important than ever for the increasing number of veterans who will be remembered with “Operation Cookie” for Memorial Day.
A minimum of two dozen home-baked, quality-packaged or sugar-free cookies can be dropped off at the clubhouse at 1424 Fremont Ave. between 7 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. on May 22. Submissions can also be delivered Tuesday, May 21 between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Convenient curbside service is available both days.
For further information on cookie delivery and volunteer opportunities, or to learn how to help in other ways including financial donations, please call or text Beverly Biber at (213) 300-9305, or email
