3-year-old bakes and delivers over 1,000 cookies to first responders amid pandemic

A 3-year-old girl is thanking those on the frontlines of COVID-19 by delivering homemade baked goods and a smile.

Mia Villa has been perfecting her famous chocolate chip cookies since she was 18 months old. With help from her mom, she's whipped up over 1,000 cookies and delivers them to hospital staff, supermarket employees, veterinarians, and fire and police departments--all at a safe distance.

Through "Mia's Cookie Jar," Mia's "cookie followers," as she likes to call them, give suggestions on where she should deliver cookies.

As an extra "thank you," Mia includes a hand-drawn picture with every drop-off.

"We've gone as far as an hour away from home to deliver them," Villa said. "They're so excited to see her, so thankful for what she's doing."

Villa said many cookies followers have requested cookies to be delivered based on personal experiences they've had with particular first responders during the pandemic.
