People Are Sending EPA Employees Chocolate Chip Cookies and Thank You Cards
The cookies showed up Monday morning, hundreds of them packed tightly in cardboard boxes, and made their way to offices throughout the Environmental Protection Agency’s headquarters in downtown Washington.
“To: EPA Staff. From: America,” the labels read. “Thank you so much for all you do. You save lives. You make the world better.”
On the back of the cookie wrappers were personal stories from people around the country who see the EPA as a force for good.
“Thanks to your work on air quality standards in Northwest Indiana, my eleven-year-old child finally has her asthma under control,” wrote Sarah from Indiana.
