Satisfy a Sailor's sweet tooth

How would you like to satisfy a holiday sweet tooth for Naval Base Ventura County’s single and deployed Sailors with your favorite cookie recipe?

Bring your baked cookies to the Fleet and Family Support Center at NBVC Port Hueneme and NBVC Point Mugu before 4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6. Or, if you don’t have the baker’s touch, any prepackaged cookies would be greatly appreciated as well. Cookies will be distributed to single Sailors in the barracks, and a portion will be shipped to deployed Sailors overseas.

The FFSC also needs volunteers to help package and deliver the cookies.

To volunteer or for more information, call the FFSC’s Brittany Barton at 982-3726 or e-mail her at brittany.barton.ctr@navy.mil.
