Girls Leaders Club Sells Cookies for Cancer

The East Islip High School Girls Leaders Club is holding an October cookie fundraiser in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Sales of the pink-and-white cookies will benefit the Maurer Foundation, which has been dedicated to raising awareness through breast health education since 1995.

Teacher Kimm Schwarz, the club’s adviser, said, “The girls will be selling these delicious cookies all through the month of October. The Maurer Foundation cookies are a great way for the teenage population to become aware of the magnitude of breast cancer on Long Island.”
