What is Operation Cookie Drop?
Operation Cookie Drop is our council-wide effort to send donated
cookies to our troop overseas, in hospitals and in veteran’s homes.
Throughout the cookie sale, Girl Scouts should ask their customers if they'd like to purchase additional cookies to be sent to current military personnel and veterans.
On June 10th, Girl Scouts are invited to participate in the cookie send-off - packing boxes, making cards, and preparing containers for shipments to soldiers.
Over 100,000 boxes were donated in 2016 and over 90,000 boxes were donated in 2015. Each of these were delivered to soldiers around the world and around our council!
