Show Caring in Cowichan this Christmas with Cookies

If you’ve been wondering about the Caring with Cookies campaign, cookie collection runs from Dec. 1 to 21.

If you’ve been wondering about the Caring with Cookies campaign, cookie collection runs from Dec. 1 to 21.

Founded and run since 2008 by Stacy Middlemiss, a 37-year-old psychiatric nursing student, mother, and wife currently living in Duncan, Caring with Cookies tries to provide some Christmas cheer to those that are down on their luck.

The cookie drive has grown considerably and has become a tradition in many homes on Vancouver Island and now she and her family get together and package more than 1,000 bags of cookies for more than 20 homeless and women’s shelters from Victoria to Nanaimo.

“This year we are going to add in something different to try and give back to some of the communities that give a lot but may not have the same resources available for us to give back,” Middlemiss said.

“If you know a family that is struggling in some way that might appreciate a box of Christmas cookies please send me a message and tell me about them before Dec. 12. We will choose three families in Lake Cowichan, three in the Cowichan Valley, and three in Ladysmith,” she said.

For more information or to help out, message Middlemiss on her Facebook page, Caring with Cookies.
