Twin Cities Habitat got an exciting donation of over 200 cookies last week! The cookies were baked by The Wayzata Girls in Action group. Wayzata Girls in Action is a group of 12-14 year old girls who do monthly service projects throughout the Twin Cities! The Tapper family founded the group last February, when both Madeline and Lindsay Tapper wanted to help improve the community and show that they care. With help from mom Holly, the girls started performing monthly service projects with other friends from the Wayzata community.

Other projects the girls have done in the past include a school supply drive, gardening, and volunteering at the Humane Society!The cookies that the girls baked were then delivered to Habitat volunteers at our home building and repair sites. Our volunteers really appreciate the tasty treats after working hard on our homes all day!

Cooking Baking is a fun and easy way for all ages to get involved in Habitat! All we ask is for people to bake at least 2 dozen cookies and deliver them to our Habitat Main office in Saint Paul. This is a fun opportunity for all ages and you might even get to eat a few cookies as well!

If you’re interested in becoming a cookie baker for Twin Cities Habitat, contact the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@tchabitat.org, 612-305-7114 or simply drop some cookies off at our office!
