The Corona Police Department was pleased to welcome an amazing group from our community today. Debby Gasteiger is the local leader for the national organization, “Cookies for a Cop.” An entire network of Corona kids and families, including Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, stopped by the police station today to deliver a gift to the Corona Police Department. Well, not exactly one gift, but 1,070 gifts! Cookies of all types, shapes, and sizes were homemade and delivered by the wonderful group of people in the photos.
Cookies for a Cop began in Cincinnati, Ohio, in December 2014, as a way for the community to express their appreciation to the men and women in law enforcement and the fire service. The cookie delivery campaign is for one week – Oct. 9-13 – and, so far, over 105,000 cookies have been delivered to 726 departments throughout the United States this year.
The Corona Police Department loves the support we receive from this community. Making over 1,000 cookies, coordinating the packaging and then the delivery, along with the creation of homemade cards of appreciation the kids clearly put their hearts into, are very much appreciated by all of us. We value all of the opportunities we have every day to help and serve our community.Thank you, Debby, and everyone involved in making and bringing Cookies for a Cop to the Corona Police Department today. We love the treats and your support!
