Each quarter, The Hand Crafted Cookie Company chooses a local organization whose work they believe is important to make a donation to. For the first quarter of 2010, they have chosen Mom's House on Church St. They will make a donation of 5% of all sales, up to $500, plus whatever amount their customers donate during that time. Last quarter, they raised $536 for PACS and, the quarter before, $594 for Citizen Advocacy of Chester County. They have set a goal of at least $600 for this quarter. So stop in, have some great cookies and help a good cause in the process!
