WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A Waterloo church has surprised firefighters and police officers with holiday treats, including hundreds of homemade cookies.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1misAfc ) that members of Our Savior Lutheran Church’s youth and evangelism boards spent three days this week baking 904 cookies, 820 pretzels, 166 miniature popcorn balls and 20 pounds of fudge. The groups delivered the goodies Thursday to each Waterloo fire station and the police station.

Church members also made gift stockings that were sent to soldiers with Cedar Rapids-based Army Reserve units serving in Afghanistan and to veterans at the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown.
