3-year-old Mia Villa is a cookie connoisseur who bakes and delivers chocolate chip cookies to hospital staff, supermarket employees, veterinarians, fire and police departments in New York through Mia’s Cookie Jar.
Her mom, Devin Villa of Stillwater said it was an act of kindness at a time (of Covid-19) pandemic that the world was feeling down and that Mia is learning lessons from her adventure.
Mia also also includes original artwork with every drop-off.
At at time when some parents are carried away and allow their children to play around unproductively, Villa said her daughter is learning through her play at home. “She’s pretending to be all of these amazing people. Saving her stuffed animals from fires, curing their ‘boo boo’s’ with her doctor kit, or scootering around the house with her junior officer badge and saving them from danger”.
Mia also made K-9 cookies and delivered them to the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office, where she earned a junior officer badge. Mia’s Cookie Jar reported K-9 Resi loved her treats!
It is good to see kids learning about serving others.
Villa added that it’s heartwarming to see at such a young age how much kids absorb. “It’s just proof that it is never too early to teach them to be kind, grateful and to have a giving heart”.
