JCCC Annual Cookie Delivery

By: Debbie Brewer

JCCC financial aid department had their annual cookie delivery on December 5th. We all bake or bring cookies and candies and we prepare goodie trays for 24 departments across campus that we work with directly throughout the year. It is our way of saying thank you for all they do for us and to express our gratitude. We have 5-6 employees deliver the cookie trays and sing Christmas carols as they deliver. It is a great team building activity and we look forward to spreading holiday cheer each year.
