COLORADO SPRINGS — Since it opened back in 2017, Sasquatch Cookies has been taking ten percent of all profits and donating that to organizations that help Colorado Springs neighbors who are experiencing homelessness.

The company that has been delivering smiles in the form of cookies was well placed for 2020 and has seen an upswing in regular business in addition to an increase in the amount of gifts being ordered to brighten the days of others.

"That's the reason I even do this business, and I think for even our employees," commented Brooke Orist, owner of Sasquatch Cookies, "this is our motivation and this is what keeps us going is the joy of this community and getting to share the cookie love with other people."

Continued support from the community and the outpouring of "cookie love" from residents to other residents, are two factors that have helped this band of bakers continue their work of care inside Colorado Springs.

"Colorado Springs [is] known as a community that is very giving, and we wanted to be a part of that, have an opportunity to share."

For the past couple years, the group has been donating a percentage of their profits to Springs Rescue Mission and has also donated their leftover cookies, about 500 each week, to Marian House.

"It creates a nice circle of giving," commented Travis Williams with Springs Rescue Mission, "so it completes the circle of when businesses do well and they're able to give back to the community, it really does make a big difference to everyone."
