We Care….

IMG_1550

Every year over 120 doctors in our community… care.

They volunteer their time and services

to provide FREE medical treatment to people in our County.

Folks who are otherwise financially unable to afford specialty health…Cardiologists,Oncologists, Neurologists,

Rheumatologists….and SO many others give their time and their expertise… to our own in need.

True community.

And every year…as a small token of thanks…the Health Department organizes a cookie drive…Dozens upon dozens of cookies to distribute to these physicians and their staff.

We joined in this year as a voice…and taste…of thanks.

Peanut butter blossom recipe here…we used Dove chocolate hearts.

The other little hugs were just a square pretzel with a Hug put on (bake in 170 degree oven for 6 minutes)

Then add a peanut butter M&M on top.

Hug!

And how wonderful of you to participate in whatever way you can. I SO didn't need to see those pretzel things. I love chocolate and pretzels.

There is nothing quite so meaningful as gifted doctors donating their time and expertise to help those who desperately need it.

So many sweet treats!
