The sound of children laughing was at an even higher pitch here at the Cookie’s store yesterday. Why? Because we proudly hosted our very tall neighbors, the Brooklyn Nets!
The whole Nets team was here to accompany 150 needy kids on a fun-filled Christmas shopping spree! American Express provided each child with a $150 gift card, and the Nets were kind enough to volunteer their time as personal toy shoppers.
Everyone came together to create some holiday magic. And the event was made even sweeter by Van Leeuwen Artisanal Ice Cream, who donated frozen treats.
We at Cookie’s are always finding new ways to improve our community and the lives of our customers, especially those who need an extra helping hand this time of year. This year we not only hosted some under-served kids for our charity event with the Nets, we also held our annual toy drive in the store. Every year we gather new and gently used toys to distribute to homeless shelters all over New York City.
