BASKING RIDGE, NJ – Doors will be open from 10 a.m. to noon next Saturday, Dec. 10 for the 26th Annual Cookie Walk at the VNA of Somerset Hills, 200 Mt. Airy Road in Basking Ridge. Each year, an amazingly wide variety of homemade cookies and baked treats is available.
Proceeds benefit the Adult Day Center at Somerset Hills. Hosted by volunteers from the Friends of the Visiting Nurse Association of Somerset Hills, this festive event has become a much-anticipated community tradition.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to stock up on homemade cookies for holiday entertaining while supporting a program that provides valuable services to so many members of our community,” said Sandy Smith of Basking Ridge, co-chair of the event.
The sale takes place at the Adult Day Center, providing an opportunity to see the excellent facility and gain a better understanding of how dollars raised are helping local residents and families.
In addition to the baked goods, shoppers can enjoy the holiday boutique and purchase boxwood Christmas tree centerpieces sold by members of the Basking Ridge Garden Club.
The Adult Day Center provides a warm and welcoming setting that enhances the quality of life for people who will benefit from companionship during the day, including those with Alzheimer’s, moderate dementia, or functional impairments due to stroke or chronic illnesses. Caregivers also receive a much-needed break from their stressful daily routine, allowing time for work and other non-caregiving responsibilities while feeling confident their loved one is safe and not lonely. The care provided at the Center may help delay need for placing a loved one in an assisted living or nursing facility.
