Abstract: We present chemical abundances in a sample of luminous cool stars located within 50 pc of the Galactic Center. Abundances of C, N, O, Ca and Fe are derived using high-resolution infrared spectra in the H- and K-bands. We report solar iron abundance, enhanced alpha element abundances, and CN-cycle mixed material in the atmospheres of these evolved stars.
