Homes for Our Troops ! and how you can help! Visit

Homes for Our Troops, a national non-profit,

We are strongly committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries since September 11, 2001. It is our duty and our honor to assist severely injured Servicemen and Servicewomen and their immediate families by raising donations of money, building materials and professional labor and to coordinate the process of building a home that provides maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently. 

The homes provided by Homes for Our Troops are given at NO COST to the Veterans we serve.

Ok everyone, its Cookie Drive #2, for December Holidays.  Lets fire up those ovens and bake some more awesome cookies for our troops serving in Afghanistan.  Lets let our troops know that we are thinking of them.  Many will not be home for December Holidays.  They will not sit around the dinner tables with their families.  So what can we do to cheer them up?  Bake awesome cookies for them. 
Many military men and women will be away from their families for this holiday and we feel that shipping homemade cookies to them is a great way for ALL of us to show our appreciation to them for their sacrifices. We do not promote any opinions about the war; we just want to support the troops.  History has shown that there are many folks that also want to support the troops as evidence of our very successful cookie drives in the past.   We thank all of you for the past years in baking delicious cookies as the troops LOVE them.  We hope to out-do last years cookie drives so please, fire up those ovens and start baking. 

Special Notes:
1.    If you are not a baker, that is fine, store bought cookies are also accepted and shipped.
2.    Packaging-please put your cookies in layers in large Ziploc bags or in Glad disposable containers. (Please do not use cookie tins as they are costly in shipping.)
3.    You are welcome to put a little note in with your cookies.  Feel free to write about your cookie baking, and a note of encouragement. (Please do not allow children to put their home address or phone number.) Adults, ok to put email address or mailing address should you like a response from our recipients. We cannot promise that they will write back as some don‚t have access, but we do have some soldiers that will write back.
4.    We will be shipping these cookies on Monday, December 5th first thing in the morning, so we cannot accept cookies after December 3rd 2011. 
5.    We will be running another cookie drive soon after this one for December Holidays.  Watch for the date on our website calander
