I will be participating in TWO Bake Sales with my daughter’s school in October. This will be our second year fundraising for this cause. It’s really easy to get involved, help out a good cause, and raise awareness.
Our first fundraiser in October will be held during the Freedom’s Run on October 4th. The school will be baking up lots and lots of Chocolate Chip Cookies to provide all the runners and families some “fuel” for after the run.
A little bit more about these yummy pumpkin cookies full of dates and walnuts and topped with a cram cheese frosting.
Please help this wonderful cause. If you would like to donate to Cookies for Kids Cancer, please donate through this Morgan Academy Page. Thank you so much!
