Katy Herbach’s Cookies for Compassion fundraiser has donated over $1,000 to Family Support of Ellicottville fund under the umbrella of the Rotary’s Family Foundation for Youth, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

When Katy Herbach, owner of Katy’s Café & Cake Creations, watched people in the Ellicottville community organize events to assist local families, she realized she wanted to help, too. With help from friends and family, Herbach kicked off her holiday fundraising effort during Ellicottville’s Christmas Stroll Dec. 1 and collected donations through Dec. 20. To entice donors, Katy’s Café offered a free bag of Cookies for Compassion in exchange for cash contributions for Family Support of Ellicottville, children’s toys for Santa’s Workshop and nonperishable food items for the Ellicottville Food Pantry.
