The Cookie Club meets every Saturday morning at the farmers market on 40th Street and Camelback to sell cookies for a cause.
Each year, the club chooses two families to give their support to and help financially.
Around 10 students go to the Great Hall each week to help bake cookies that they will sell on the upcoming Saturday.
They sell jars of cookies for $15 and that money goes to buy necessities such as bed frames, computers, clothing, food and furniture.
Once they are able to purchase the items that the families need, they personally deliver the items to the families’ houses.
“It’s fun, you get to meet a lot of new people and it’s a great way to give back to the community,” said Chris Ashton ’15. “I like it when we go to the families’ houses and give them their supplies and seeing how happy and thankful they are.”
With the help of their moderator Mr. Matt Williams ’07 they are able to help make families’ lives easier and give back to the community.
Last year they raised more than $4,000.
“I joined the club to get involved in the community,” said head of sales Bradley Sheffield ’15. “It is also fun to hang out with the seniors and make new friends.”
They sell five different types of cookies: a peanut butter a chocolate cookie called Bronco Bites, a heath cookie called Bring on the Heath, an oatmeal and raisin cookie called Raisin the Bar, a chocolaty cookie called the Chocolate Bomb, and a coconut cookie.
“My favorite type is Bring on the Heath,” Ashton said.
The clubs’ most popular type of cookies are the Bronco Bites.
The club sells between nine and 12 jars of cookies every Saturday, which is between $135 and $180 a week.
The club was previously known as the Calc Club but around three years ago it was changed to more adequately describe what they did.
