Every year, the Junior Leaders bake cookies to give to families in need during the holiday season. On Monday, the group sent off 1,233 cookies to the Good Shepherd Thrift Store and Food Pantry in Tonganoxie to distribute. Inset photo: A mouse cookie, which was placed on top of the other cookies in each holiday tin.
