Volunteer Spotlight: Cookie Jane

Jane Smith brought more than cookies to our House- she brought a legacy.

Fondly referred to as “Cookie Jane”, Jane baked cookies for the guests at the House weekly for 25 years.  She never came without her smile. We named our cookie program after her to honor her dedication as a volunteer with RMHC of Richmond. Even after she was physically unable to bake for the families, she would advantages still visit- occasionally volunteering to be a greeter for an event for us!

Sadly, though, we had to say good to our long-time volunteer. She passed away at the end of May of this year. Her kindness will never be forgotten and her legacy will live on through the hundreds of families who enjoy the small comfort of freshly baked cookies in our kitchen during Jane’s Cookie Hour.
