A tasty holiday tradition continued to help families build homes in the Grand Island area Sunday.
Volunteers made 12,000 cookies and treats for the 11th Annual Cookie Walk at Grand Island's St. Paul's Lutheran Church.
"The Christmas Cookie Walk has really become a tradition for a lot of people, whether it's bakers or families that come out to buy; so it's a fun event for everyone," said Dana Jelinek, executive director of the G.I. Area Habitat for Humanity.
People could buy pre-packaged or fill a container with their favorites.
It all benefits Habitat for Humanity.
"This is a great fundraiser because, not only is it wonderful to have the proceeds for our building program, but it also involves a lot of people in the community who may not otherwise work with Habitat in other ways," said Jelinek.
Usually the treats go fast, but the snow may have kept some people away.
You can always donate to Habitat year-round by contacting their office.
