Cookbook

Cookbook Image
Victim Support Services is preparing a custom cookbook featuring favorite recipes from our supporters, volunteers, families, and friends. We will prepare and sell this cookbook in an effort to raise funds to support direct services to crime victims. It will be professionally published and contain a variety of recipes. It will also contain a table of contents, an index, and recipe category dividers.
It will also be special, as we would like to offer the opportunity to submit recipes in honor or memory of a loved one.  Memorial/In Honor of recipes will be limited to 1 submission per person.  You may also submit up to 5 other favorite recipes so you and your loved one can be represented. It is sure to be treasured for years to come!
Our goal is to collect 200 recipes by December 31, 2014. We hope to have cookbooks to sell by our 40th Anniversary Celebration in February 2015.
Follow the instructions below. Your name and the information you specify will be printed with your recipes. Your help in contributing recipes will ensure that this project will be a big success for Victim Support Services to continue to provide direct services to Victims of Crime.

Testimonials

"With the help of VSS, you are empowered and encouraged to fight back and be pro-active. Then your conscience can be more at peace because you know you have taken some action to protest crimes inflicted on your loved one. It is sometimes your only consolation."

“The one takeaway for me in working with VSS is that it is a necessary organization. I know they are funded by grants and fundraisers but it’s something we need to make sure as a community that they have the funding needed because what they do for people in need doesn’t happen anywhere else. This is the only place that this happens and VSS helps with so many things.”

David Rose

Anchor, Q13 News and Host, Washington’s Most Wanted

“VSS is there when the unthinkable happens.  When a police officer knocks on your door and gives you tragic news, VSS helps navigate the court system, which can be very confusing. VSS is compassion, caring, and commitment. Commitment to once justice is done that victims and their families can move forward with their lives.”

Jennifer Gregerson

Mayor, City of Mukilteo

“VSS has been our partner in recovery and healing and a key part in what makes Mukilteo Strong. VSS has been a trusted advocate for the victims that have suffered so much in the community.  I’m so grateful to VSS as our partner in strength.”

Jon Nehring

Mayor, City of Marysville

“VSS is there for people in their darkest hour. At a time when they need an advocate and friend, VSS steps in to fill that gap and help them begin their journey back to some sense of normalcy.” 

Myrle Carner

Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound

“This thing about closure. There is never really closure in a victim’s life but VSS helps individuals to get closer to that and that’s critical because the cops and the judicial system just move on to another case because they don’t have time. Victims live with this trauma forever so VSS is with them for as long as they need the services. VSS takes the time, more importantly, they really care."
