Thank you SJS Family! Our Christmas Cookies to the Community was a huge success. We ended up with over 200 dozen cookies. We gave cookie plates to our 44 neighbors, many SOAR businesses and other businesses around our school, many Catholic places around Omaha, and many community places (like the library, police station, post office). We had so many cookies, we got to find some new places to donate to this year (no cookie goes to waste!). A few of these included big cookie plates to Open Door Mission, Sienna Francis House, Lydia House, Bethlehem House, and House of Hope. Our SJS family spread a lot of Christmas cheer. This project would not be possible without all your help. Thank you!
