This year, cookie sales will begin Nov. 20 and will have cookies on hand starting on Dec. 5.
Cookies will be offered to Freetown and Lakeville town employees and at the Lakeville Senior Center on Dec. 7.
Cookie booths will be set up at local businesses starting Dec. 8 through March. Each week the schedule will be posted to the town Facebook pages: Lakeville Helping Lakeville, Freetown Helping Freetown
Boxes are now $6 each. They had been $5 each since 2015. Given inflation and the rising cost of goods this change had to be made. Local troops earn $1.10 for each box sold. These funds are used for troop programming and community events like cards and cozy socks for nursing home residents, Easter candy for St Vincent DePaul food pantry, and pet treats to Lakeville Animal Shelter.
