On Saturday, Dec. 2, hundreds of participants stood in line at Westminister Presbyterian Church in Munster to participate in Hospice of the Calumet Area’s 19th Annual Cookie Walk. The cookies were baked by HCA staff, volunteers and supporters were gone in 27 minutes. The fundraiser for the organization has become a staple in the community, usually raising close to $3000 for the non-profit.

Hospice of the Calumet Area is a 37-year-old non-profit dedicated to cherishing life by improving the quality of life with compassionate care for individuals and their families facing a life limiting illness.
