Huntsville Bakery uses cookies to give back to the community

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Delicious cookies and a good cause are a match made in heaven – and a downtown Huntsville bakery is using its treats to raise money for a local charity.

The Moon Bakeshop launched the Moon Mission-to-Love Cookie Box fundraiser in July. People were able to order a box of 20 cookies that were never sold at the bakery and all proceeds will go to the New Futures non-profit organization in Huntsville.

New Futures Family Lodge is a 13-room homeless shelter. The organization’s goal is to temporarily support families while they find permanent housing and financial security.

It’s the first time The Moon Bakeshop has held the fundraiser, but the bakery told News 19 it won’t be the last.

“In the future, we want to develop it so that other bakeries and other bakers work together. So we’re making it an even bigger event,” owner Madeline Watkins told News 19. “We did what we could this time, but hopefully other bakeries can get involved and they can bring their cookies, then the box will be filled with cookies from all over town.

Any bakers, bakeries or non-profits interested in working with The Moon Bakeshop are encouraged to email the bakery here.
