“We are so excited to bring warm cookie delivery to the Arlington area,” Co-founder of Tiff’s Treats Leon Chen said in a news release. “This area is home to us, and we can’t wait to work with businesses and residents to make each day a little sweeter. We are especially pleased to help be a part of the mission of Cook Children’s, as nothing is more important to us than the health and well-being of our family, and we know that’s true for our friends and fans in Arlington.”

The new store at 1705 N. Collins, Suite 121, will offer $5 one-dozen boxes of Tiff’s Treats cookies with flavors such as chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and snickerdoodle on opening day. There is; however, a limit of six boxes per person.
The news release said that all of the sales up to $5,000 will be donated to Cook Children’s therapy dog program and will help cover the cost of therapy dogs by providing a year of care for one therapy dog. This will include grooming, veterinary care and food.
Although there is usually a 30-minute notice required for pick-up orders and a one hour notice for delivery, for the grand opening fundraiser there is no advance notice required. Cookies will be available from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
