Thank you so much for helping to spread the word about Drop In & Decorate: Cookies for Donation. This is something anyone -- everyone! -- can do. We're here to answer questions or help make it happen.

Katie Carr

I love the idea of Drop in and Decorate! I am excited to do this with friends. My Summer of Giving has definitely evolved and I am hoping to host a Drop in and Decorate in the fall when my little darlings are in school and I have more time (and sanity) to prep. This is a wonderful organization!


Katie, please be sure to let me know if we can help in any way!


Drop in and Decorate is brilliant. It makes helping others/connecting personal. It builds a sesne of community and belonging. Great stuff!


I've been to Drop In events large and small and each one has been wonderful. Thank you, Lydia. And thank you, Carol, for spreading the word.

I'm going to see if I can get our church to hold an event. We have a goal of giving 15000 hours of service to the community in 2012. This would be a super fun event. I even know of an organization to whom we can give them.

I'm thinking big... maybe try to make 100+ cookies. I suppose sugar cookies would be the ones that would freeze the best. How long it take the icing to dry?

BTW - Thanks for all the comments.


Carol, the icing needs to dry overnight in order to be hard enough to package in bags, but if you need to make delivery sooner, you can set them flat on trays. The free how-to guide on our web site gives lots of information (and recipes, too). Sugar cookies can be frozen so you can make them way ahead.

One of the best parts of having a cookie is that it is a one person treat, not the corner of the cake or the middle bit without flowers but a very personal, devoured at one's own pace treat. Yes, there are pie people and cake people but the cookie? Oh the cookie is all about me, mine, not yours and it is a delicious idea that such a personal, specific, deliciously decorated is brought to one by a committee of generous hearts and hand. A very good idea indeed.
