STEVENSVILLE — Very early Wednesday morning, Dec. 22, staff from Chesapeake Charities, Inc., departed Stevensville, and drove to western Kentucky — an area that was especially devastated by tornadoes the week of December 8. Known as “Operation Christmas Cookie”, Chesapeake Charities posted across social and local news media asking for assistance in providing “a human touch” by bringing as much Christmas cheer as possible to those who were hurt most by the destructive storms.

Chesapeake Charities Executive Director Linda Kohler was among those who went to Kentucky. She said, “We wanted to let the people there know that we care for them, and want to help in whatever ways we can.” Kohler added, “This was not meant to be a one-time mission. We went to make contacts and keep in touch with the people there to have them let us know what we can continue to do to help them in their long-term recovery.”
