BELMONT, NY — On Tuesday, December 12, the Allegany County Democratic Committee (ACDC) delivered homemade cookies to more than 1,000  “Health Care Heroes” at Allegany County’s medical facilities: Wellsville Manor, Manor Hills, Highland Park Rehabilitation, 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 fourth 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 175 dozen cookies, which were packed into individual bags at locations around the County. Each bag had a tag that read: “Thank you, Healthcare Worker!  We are very grateful! Allegany County Democratic Committee 2023”

Martha Sabato, 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.
