A Thank You And A New Event!

The Haverhill Taste Of The Town this past Saturday was a smashing success!  We had some extraordinary people visit our table this year and it was great to have the opportunity to talk about Cookie Central and our 3rd Annual Great American Bake Sale campaign. 

43 Dollar Days raffle tickets were sold along with a few No Kid Hungry cookies and Share Our Strength cookie pops.  If you were one of the wonderful people who donate please check back in here, on our YouTube Channel, our Facebook Fan Page or our Twitter Stream for the video of the raffle drawing to be posted on April 16th!

For everyone who came by THANK YOU! 


We're Teaming Up!
That's right, Cookie Central is hoping on the bandwagon of another Great American Bake Sale! 

It's always exciting when we meet people who are as moved by Share Our Strength's mission to end childhood hunger in the U.S. as we are.  Lo and behold we found someone right here in our home town.  The lovely Wendi Roy is the epitome of the Super Mom. With 3 awesome girls, this blogger behind Anyone Can Cook and contributor to North Andover Patch, finds the time to sell Pampered Chef products all while holding down a full time job...incredible! 

We are thrilled to be volunteering at Wendi's Great American Bake Sale:
