Cookies donated for soldiers

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A motorcycle club is testing their skills in the kitchen.

The Bomber Girls met up for a poker run at John's V-Twin in Savannah, each bringing cookies for soldiers serving in Afghanistan. Anyone who didn't bring cookies donated cash instead. The money will be used to ship the cookies overseas.

"We send out care packages five to six times a year and we try to send different things. Cookies seemed real appropriate for Valentine's Day and it's something that either people can bake and give from the heart or they can go by the store and pick some up and it's a taste of home. They open a box and get a big smile," said Jill Ward, vice president of the Bomber Girls LRC.

A cookie packing party will be held Monday night at the Savannah Wingmen Clubhouse.
