Cookie Walk Supports United Methodist Women

Volunteers are breaking out the oven mitts and whipping up some sweet treats just in time for the holiday season.

Central Trinity United Methodist Church held its annual cookie walk on Saturday.  More than 50 bakers brought hundreds of delicious and decorative delectables to share with the Zanesville community.

"We have people that come and buy plates so they can give cookies for Christmas to different organizations and friends," said Sandy Holbein.  "It’s nice because they don’t have to make a whole bunch of cookies.  They can come here and get a variety."

The icing on the cake is that every penny from the sale is donated to charity.  United Methodist Women provides leadership opportunities, mission education and reading programs to women in the United States and around the world.

"When they had the tsunami and what happened with the kids in Haiti, it’s deplorable when you see how bad it is in some of these countries," said Mary Hoover.  "When we see our little star on that map, we know that’s one of the places we sponsored."

This is the ninth year for the cookie walk at Central Trinity United Methodist Church.  For more information about United Methodist Women, visit
