For the seventh consecutive year the Gettysburg Dollars for Scholars has baked cookies in its annual fundraiser. Funds from the fundraiser are used for scholarships for graduating seniors for the Gettysburg Area School District. This year the organization baked and plated over 10,000 cookies. With a presence at the National Honor Society Market, the Gettysburg Dollars for Scholars has had great success with its fundraising efforts, where the results go directly to Gettysburg students entering into higher education - both at vocational and technical schools and colleges.
