Cookie drive to send taste of home to overseas service members

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - In an effort to give those away from their families a taste of home for the holidays, Joint Base Charleston is holding a cookie drive to send cookies to deployed troops in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as military personnel stationed on base here in Charleston.  For the second year, the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce will be the community drop off site for people wanting to send cookies.

Cookies can be dropped off in the Chamber lobby at 4500 Leeds Ave., Ste. 100, North Charleston from Monday, November 29 – Monday, December 6, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. If you would like to participate, just bring your cookies anytime during the week!  They can be homemade or store bought.  If you make the cookies, there is no special packaging – a zip lock bag is fine.
