Annual Cookie Walk set for Saturday

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - First Presbyterian's annual Cookie Walk is set for this weekend.

The event is at the First Presbyterian Church in Jonesboro located at 710 Southwest Drive from 8 a.m. until noon Saturday, Dec. 12.

The Cookie Walk brings in hundreds of different types of cookies. Some are even holiday themed.

Shoppers can pick out as many cookies as they like and then pay by the pound.

All proceeds from the Cookie Walk go to the church's mission to fighting hunger in the Region 8 area.

Money will directly go to the Helping Neighbors Food Pantry, backpack programs and a new program called FANN, which stands for Friends and Neighbors Network.

Church members said previously they have given all proceeds to Helping Neighbors, but this year they have decided to spread the proceeds among different organizations in hopes of fighting hunger.
