The Annual UUSG Cookie Walk!

This year’s Cookie Walk is Friday, December 4, and as always, we need bakers and helpers. The Cookie Walk is a long-held and cherished fundraising tradition at UUSG, and it is part of the Geneva celebration that welcomes in the holiday season with light, food, and festivities. It’s also a lot of fun—in one evening, we sell over 7,500 beautiful holiday cookies!

Many of you already know what to do – if you plan to help, please sign up here.

You can help by doing any of the following:

  • Bake cookies (6, 12, or 18 dozen—or more!).
  • Set up for the event on Thursday, December 3, 6:30-8:30pm.
  • Work at the event itself: 3:45-5:30pm or 5:15-7pm.
  • Post flyers around town before the event.

Want to Bake?

  • Please make festive holiday cookies (the plain ones, as tasty as they may be, just don’t sell as well).
  • Bring your goodies in disposable containers (shirt boxes, disposable plates, etc.—things that you do not want back and are recyclable). Make sure your cookies are well-protected, and enclose a piece of paper with the name of the cookies.
  • We have two duplicate tables of cookies (to reduce the wait time for Cookie Walkers), so please provide two identical sets of whatever you bring so that we can put one plate or box on each table.
  • Drop off your cookies on Thursday, December 3 between 6:30pm and 8:30pm. If you’re not able to make it to UUSG on Thursday evening, please contact Katie Phillips in the church office to make arrangements to bring your cookies earlier in the week. Please note that no one will be at UUSG to accept cookies on Friday.

Not a Baker? Set Up for or Help at the Event

  • Help with set-up on Thursday, December 3, 6:30-8:30pm. Set-up includes assembling boxes, setting up tables, arranging the cookies, etc. The tasks are simple, we go at a leisurely pace, and we talk a lot. You may sit or stand as you prefer. Broken cookies may be sampled this night only.
  • Help during the event on Friday, December 4, 3:45-5:30pm or 5:15-7pm. Helping at the event itself is a little more hectic, but great fun! There are a couple of sitting jobs, but for most of them you must stand. Tasks include keeping the cookie tables filled with cookies, taping boxes, recycling containers, and handing out gloves. 

Other Ways to Help

  • Post flyers (available in the Common Room) in coffee shops, businesses, grocery stores, etc. in Geneva, St. Charles, and Batavia.
