Cookies For a Cause
Cookies For a Cause raises money for the veterans living in St. John Specialty Care Center, located on 500 Wittenberg Way in Mars. With the help of Mars Student Council, we have raised over $5,000 selling cookies at the Mars Farmer’s Market every Saturday throughout the summer months. One hundred percent of proceeds are given to the St. John veterans. Thanks to the great efforts of Student Council volunteers, Cookies for a Cause has reached its goal of $1,000 each summer so far, and we look forward to this summer’s continued success!
We have always respected those who served our country, but after reading the book “Unbroken”, we realized the true extent of our soldiers’ sacrifices. “Unbroken” was about WWII veteran Louis Zamperini, who was a POW of the Japanese. The horrific experiences he encountered were heartbreaking, and made us realize the real human cost of the freedoms we enjoy today. We live with gratitude, and want to give back to those who kept my family and our country safe. We are Jenna and John Sutton, and our goal is to raise money and spread gratitude for local veterans.
