Non-partisan Cookie Brigade sends cookies to American troops
The Cookie Brigade defines itself as an independent, non-partisan organization of bakers who volunteer time and donate supplies to bake cookies for America's troops. It was founded in 2006 by Susan Hager of Frederic, Wisconsin, and Yolanda Segovia of Riverdale, New York. According to this article, Cookie Brigade's members are neither anti-war nor pro-war. There are currently three chapters of Cookie Brigade and more than 25,000 cookies have been shipped to troops. For information about volunteering to bake, starting a local chapter, or to request cookies for a deployed soldier or convalescing service man or woman, visit http://www.cookiebrigade.com/.
