Anya Marcotte, 9, and her mother, Patti, make cookies last week in their Sacramento home for the Cookie Project. John Marcotte, Anya’s father and Patti’s husband, two years ago founded the project. He describes its mission as: “We will be traveling the city delivering Christmas cookies to people working crappy jobs that in a rational and kinder world should be at home with their families.”
