They really care!

Three cheers to Downtown kids store Cookie’s, which gifted blankets to babies delivered at The Brooklyn Hospital Center on June 10.

The longtime Fulton Street department store did the good deed as part of its partnership with the DeKalb Avenue healthcare facility, that will swaddle the young ‘uns before they become the shop’s next generation of patrons, according to its namesake chief.

“Since opening more than 40 years ago, Cookie’s has delivered top value to the kids and families who make our city so great,” said the department store’s president Cookie Falack in a written statement. “TBHC shares the same commitment to the health of these families, which is why we couldn’t be happier about this partnership.”

The hospital has 10 labor and delivery suites, and delivers more than 2,500 babies every year, according to a statement by the care center.

A hospital honcho praised their neighbor for providing a destination for Kings County families for generations.

“Cookie’s remains our neighbor and friend with both the store and the hospital dedicated to the health and well-being of Brooklyn families,” hospital President Gary Terrinoni said in a written statement. “Cookie’s has been a legendary one-stop shopping destination for more than 40 years and we are grateful for their generosity.”
