Hackettstown church seeks homemade cookies for Truck Stop Cookie Project

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – Trinity United Methodist Church is looking to spread some joy to truckers through the Truck Stop Cookie Project.

Their goal this year is 500 bags, each with 1 dozen cookies, some holiday candy, and a Christmas message.

“500 bags means 500 dozen cookies! Can we do it? Sure we can,” the church said.

Cookies should be firm, not fragile and should not contain nuts or peanut butter.

People interested can start baking now, freeze them, and then bring them to Starr Hall, located at 213 Main Street, on Saturday, December 17 between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.

Packers are also needed. If you can help out, be at Starr Hall by 9:00 a.m. and you will be done before noon.

The cookie bags will be distributed to truckers passing through the TA Travel Center on Interstate 80 in Columbia the week before Christmas.

“Let’s show our appreciation for their long hours on the road (many not being home with their family during the holidays) and give them some Christmas cheer,” the church said.
