Jamestown Community College gave back to frontline healthcare workers by donating 1,000 cookies to Brooks Memorial Hospital on Friday.

Heather Morris, director of alumni relations at JCC delivered the cookies to the hospital. “We wanted to do this because so many of our alumni go into the healthcare professions and they’re at all the hospitals,” said Morris. “Just to give back and say thank you to them.”

The cookies, including chocolate chip, sugar, and snicker doodle were all baked fresh at Farm Fresh Foods. Dan Brown, owner of Farm Fresh Foods said that the store prides itself in helping the community in any way it can. “I’m proud to be a part of a community that helps each other when needed the most,” said Brown. “I’m glad we could be part of giving back to the nurses and doctors that help save lives.” Brown graduated with an associate’s degree from Jamestown Community College in 2002.

Lisa Barone, RN, graduate of ’94 and Theresa Schrantz, LPN, class of ’83, alumni of JCC came out to accept the cookies from Morris, thanking her for the donation.

“These look so good,” said Sheila Walier, director of marketing and community relations for Brooks Memorial Hospital. “Thank you so much, this is so nice!”
