Individuals from the Adult Day Habilitation program in Randolph, Mass., have landed quite a sweet gig.
Once a week, they head to Ginger Betty’s
in Quincy to help package the bakery’s signature soft gingerbread with chocolate drizzle cookies. These treats are sent overseas to our troops, many of whom long for a sweet taste of home.
Ginger Betty’s is the Original Gingerbread Bakery of the South Shore of Massachusetts! Owner Beth Veneto has been in business for 20 years. She started the GI Ginger Betty Foundation in 2007 to show gratitude for the daily sacrifices those in the military make for our country.
Day Hab participants are excited and proud to be part of this community endeavor. According to Veneto, they are becoming more proficient every week, and have packaged more than 15,000 cookies.
May Institute’s Day Habilitation programs
provide individualized support for adults of all ages with special needs. Programs include daily living skills training and active community involvement.
