Volunteers from Spring Hill, FL comprise one of the many groups across the country that bake and send cookies to deployed military men and women on behalf of Treat The Troops. The hard working ladies and men in Spring Hill have baked and sent over 35,000 cookies in just 15 months, but are increasing that number every day! Each volunteer bakes as he or she has time, then takes the treats to Barbara Newlin, the area coordinator, who has a freezer in her garage that’s dedicated to just cookies. Once a month the packing team gets together, boxes them up, and ships them to troops that have either requested them from Treat The Troops’ website, or have had family or friends write on their behalf.
Across the country, Treat The Troops volunteers have baked and sent over 900,000 cookies! Receiving over 250 requests a month, covering the postage takes a constant fund raising effort. To help with donations for postage expenses and baking ingredients, please send checks made out to “Treat The Troops
