Cookies for airmen collection this week

The Minot Area Chamber of Commerce is the drop off site in the city for the collection of homemade cookies for the annual Minot Air Force Base Officers Spouses’ Club Airmen Cookie Drive.

People can drop off their homemade cookies at the Chamber office this week through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Friday from 9 a.m. to noon. The Chamber office is located at 1020-20th Ave. SW.

The cookies will be boxed at Minot AFB and distributed to nearly 1,200 first-term airmen who live in dormitories on the base. The overall collection goal between the base and city is 12,000 to 13,000 cookies so each airmen can receive one dozen cookies.
