Scrolling through Facebook one morning in April, middle school English teacher Jeremy Uhrich noticed something unusual: his friend Scott McKenzie showing off his homemade chocolate chip cookies. Jeremy made some too, and started showing off on Facebook. Jeremy challenged Scott to a bake-off! The pair created Cookies for Caregivers, a Facebook group where other residents could volunteer to make treats for first responders and business owners. They delivered more than 15,100 snickerdoodles, sugar cookies, cakes and more to workers at local hospitals, grocery stores, fire departments and more.
