PERRYVILLE, MO (KFVS) - The VFW Post 4282 Ladies Auxiliary in Perryville spent all weekend baking about 3,000 cookies for troops overseas.
The cookies are intended to be a treat for soldiers with ties to Perry County, Missouri.
The women bake the cookies and sk community members where they can send them.
People of Perry County who have a soldier in their family or friends of a soldier will can give them information of where that soldier is so they can send them a care package of cookies, candy and a letter thanking them for their service.
They have been doing this since 2006 and bake more and more cookies each year.
The group has some soldiers they are sending cookies to, but still have plenty of cookies left to give out.
They are asking for families to step up and tell them where they can send some soldiers some treats.
