TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - One Terre Haute woman is paying it forward this holiday season.
51 weeks out of the year, Mary Greer is a switchboard operator at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.
However, the week before holiday break, Mary is the "Cookie Lady".
Mary bakes hundreds of cookies every day and places them under a tree in the main lobby of Hadley hall.
Mary remembers when she was young, a neighbor would have warm oatmeal raisin cookies on the front porch every day when she walked home from school.
She wants the students to see that same kindness each holiday season. She said seeing the students get excited warms her heart.
"Sometimes there's tears. And it makes me happy that I have made somebody, you know, happy, just with a cookie," said Mary.
Mary estimates she bakes 300 to 400 cookies each day this week.
The students said the cookies remind them of their own holiday traditions created by family and friends.
