Our first ever Cookie-Gram Fundraiser, just in time for Administrative Assistant Recognition Day on April 21st. At $50 each (with $30 of that being donated to the Foundation), each basket will include a plate of spring-themed decorated sugar cookies from Jenn’s Cookies along with a balloon and card -- each hand-delivered by a Foundation Board member. There will be a limited number available. Orders close April 12 with deliveries the week of April 19. To sign up for a cookie-gram, please fill out the form here.
