Staffers Get Down to Business in Kitchen

Business school employees trade office setting for a day of baking

Nine Minnesota School of Business staffers chose to exchange
an afternoon in the office for a few hours of mixing, scooping and baking
cookies for two Guardian Angels’ locations.

“I enjoyed getting out into the community and making an impact on
individuals who may not get to see many people around this time of year,” said
Minnesota School of Business staff member Kate Samuelson.

The crew baked more than 270 cookies that they distributed to about 60
residents at Guardian Angels by the Lake and to another 30 residents at
Guardian Angels on Main.  The residents
enjoyed a variety of chocolate chip, snickerdoodle and peanut butter blossom
cookies—all made with a lot of laughter and great teamwork.

“When receiving the cookies, most residents were very appreciative,”
Samuelson said.  “It was nice to bring a
little happiness in the form of cookies around the holidays.”

Minnesota School of Business staff members chose making cookies for
Guardian Angels’ residents as their We Care project for the school’s fall
quarter.  Each quarter, or about every
three months, a group of staff members choose a new project that involves
connecting with the local community and giving back to it.
