Over 50 volunteers baked nearly 2000 cookies for love
BELMONT, NY — On Tuesday, February 14th, the Allegany County Democratic Committee (ACDC) delivered homemade cookies to approximately 1,000 “Health Care Heroes” at Allegany County’s medical facilities: Wellsville Manor, Manor Hills, Highland Park Rehabilitation and Jones Memorial Hospital, and Hart Comfort House in Wellsville; Cuba Memorial Hospital in Cuba, and the Houghton Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Houghton.
This is ACDC’s third year organizing this project. Those involved do it to show support for our local health care workers, let them know they are appreciated, and thank them for the compassionate attention they give to the community members in their care.
More than 50 volunteers from all corners of the county baked and donated 160 dozen cookies, which were packed in individual bags at several locations around the County. Each bag had a tag that read: “To the unknown hero receiving this message: Thank you for all you do. We are very grateful! Allegany County Democratic Committee 2023”
Martha Sabato, Committee Vice Chair and a key organizer for this project, spoke for all: “Words can never fully express our appreciation, but we believe that cookies are able to say what words cannot. With this project, we recognize and honor the commitment and dedication of our local health care workers as they attend to our loved ones, our dearest friends, and our neighbors.”
