‘C’ is for more than just ‘cookie’ posted on 10/01/2019

For on-the-go people during the hectic holiday season, those cherished cookies loved by your family and friends may take a back burner.

But it doesn't need to be that way, even if you are too busy to make fresh cookies yourself. Neighborhood Missions annual fundraiser for pre-ordering your cookies is currently underway, running from Tuesday, Oct. 1 through Wednesday, Nov. 20.

Myke Jagow, who has spearheaded the Neighborhood Missions cookie fundraiser for the past five years, explained her flair for baking and wanting to lend a hand.

"I have a gift for baking," Jagow said. "This project provides money for those who need just some help; be it gas, help with rent, wood, etc. when the month is too long for their paychecks."

Cookies are available in five mouthwatering flavors: choose from chocolate chip oatmeal, old fashion ginger molasses, peanut butter crunch, triple chocolate or white chocolate and cranberry oatmeal.

A special request can also be made if your favorite is not among this list.

Each batch sold is made fresh for specific orders. The cost for a batch of approximately 60 cookies, which are baked, double-wrapped and labeled for your freezer and delivered, is $29. Or, if preferred, the cookies are ready to serve in a box or on a platter. Perfect for your holiday party or family get-together when serious cookie munchers are present.

100 percent of all money collected from the cookie sales are gifted to Neighborhood Missions who assists those in need or who find themselves in economic difficulties with food, firewood, utility and rent payments, repairs, transportation, medicines and more.

In 2014, the first year of the cookie fundraiser, Jagow handed over approximately $945, and last year an impressive figure of $1,251 was raised.

Jagow's initial grocery list for the cookies is impressive: 50 pounds of flour, 40 pounds of white sugar, 31 pounds of brown sugar, 34 pounds of oats, a whopping 74 pounds of chocolate chips, 12 pounds of plums, 10 pounds of raisins, 45 pounds of butter and 15 dozen eggs. If orders warrant, the list grows.

Jagow receives some assistance from volunteers to help fill orders for the cookies, and those that have helped in previous years are usually Hoodland Lutheran Church members.

To order your cookies or for more information, call 503-622-5558, or e-mail Myke Jagow at ncaofo@hotmail.com.
