A group of friends in New Jersey, have been baking Christmas cookies for a purpose for the past 12 years. Every Saturday after Thanksgiving, they’d cram into a kitchen and start baking. By the end of the holiday season, they made thousands of cookies, all to be sent overseas to members of the U.S. military.
The mastermind behind the project was Santina Flynn. Her son, Justin, was in the Marines and she wanted to find a way to give the service members a little piece of home while they were away from home during the holiday season. Sadly, Santina Flynn passed away earlier this year from breast cancer. Her legacy lives on through her friends and family.
