LPA FCCLA members sell over 800 cookies for children
Members of the LPA Family Career and Community Leaders of America baked, decorated and sold over 800 cookies to benefit the Children's Miracle Network, Becker County Foster Care Program and Children's World Relief.
Each member was asked to donate two-dozen decorated cookies. Eight members, and their advisor Cheryl Hogie, along with parent volunteers Becky Swegarden and Nadine Hilfer, spent Saturday morning, Nov. 10, at the Holiday Showcase in the LP-A Elementary building in Audubon selling cookies for 25 cents each. Customers could purchase as many or as few cookies as they wanted.
Profits from the event reached over $200. Cookies that remained at the end of the event were packaged and frozen, to be shared with the giving baskets for the Lake Park and Audubon communities.
