Environmental Protection Agency employees received hundreds of cookies this week as a thank you from concerned citizens fearing the agency will be slashed by the Trump administration.
The label on the cookie packages read: “To: EPA Staff. From: America.”
The message: “Thank you so much for all you do. You save lives. You make the world better.”
On the back of each package of chocolate chip cookies was a personalized story from people from around the country who suffer from asthma and other ailments.
“Thanks to your work on air quality standards in Northwest Indiana,” read one message from Sarah in Indiana. She added: “my 11-year-old child finally has her asthma under control,” according to the Washington Post.
The cookies were sent Monday ahead of President Trump’s release of his budget blueprint, which calls for cutting EPA’s budget well over 30 percent, while laying off 3,200 employees.
