Giving Back

Continuous with our goals, it is very important that we reach out to those in need in our community.  Each year, we endeavor to reach out to shelters and the homeless.  Hyacinth's Place, in Washington, D.C., is one of those shelters. Hyacinth's Place provides comfortable efficiencies for displaced women who have been diagnosed with a mental illness. Excitedly, Cookielyn and Company Catering has been given the opportunity to feed these women during the holiday seasons. Sharing our blessings is how we minister to those in need. As a minority women-owned business, women's issues are always an important reason for our giving. In 2022, we traveled to Greenville, Marietta, and Slater, South Carolina to feed over 200 individuals in impoverished areas. This Thanksgiving, we will be in Southeast Washington D.C. to feed another 200 or more.  As God gives me strength, I will continue to serve.
