In a collaborative effort to bring cheer to the residents of some local nursing homes and assisted living facilities, OSF Hospice volunteers baked 43 dozen cookies and met to assemble the 80 cookie plates to be delivered. Working on the project were: from left, OSF Hospice volunteers, Penny Hunter, Judy Djerf and Dona LaPorte.
