This Lufkin, Texas Bakery Is Selling The Cutest Pelican Cookies For A Great Cause
We all know that our neighbors to the east in Louisiana had a pretty hard hit from hurricane Ida. When a major storm happens here they always helps us before anyone else.
Confections, a local Lufkin bakery, is returning the favor by selling these pelicans with a heart cookies. Louisiana's official nickname is "The Pelican State" and the brown pelican is the state bird.
A pelican is the perfect subject for the cookie. They can be found on the Louisiana state flag, state seal, and more. When the World Exposition was in Louisiana in 1984 a pelican named Seymore was the mascot.
They are selling the cookies, but 100% of the profits are going to hurricane relief efforts in Louisiana. They are making a donation to Second Harvest Food Bank.
The organization provides four meals for every dollar donated. If you want to support the cause, but aren't close enough to enjoy the cookies, don't worry I have a link for you.
Confections is located at 117 W. Shepherd Ave. in downtown Lufkin. They are open Tuesday - Friday 10am - 5pm and Saturday from 11am - 2pm if you want to get your pelican cookies in person.
Dawn and her sister Miranda own the bakery and they have a knack for making cookies that make a difference. "We love our Community and the sweet support our small business has received. We wouldn’t be here without our village." - Dawn
