Operation Cookie Drop
Girls Scouts - North Carolina Coastal Pines has celebrated more than 13 years of Operation Cookie Drop, a community service project that brings a sweet taste of home to deployed military men and women and serving our country at home. We have donated well over 1 million boxes total to our military men and women serving our country!
During each Cookie Program, Girl Scouts across 41 counties work to collect donations through both cookie booth sales and during Walkabout Week where they sell cookies within local neighborhoods.
Girls that donate 15 boxes earn our awesome Operation Cookie Drop patch.
Cookie Drops take place at The USO in Jacksonville, Cherry Point in Havelock, Seymour Johnson Airforce Base in Goldsboro, Fort Bragg near Fayetteville, NC Packs 4 Patriots in Ayden and more, to be delivered to military personnel. In addition to boxes of cookies, many Girl Scout troops have written letters to the troops to thank them for their service and to let them know that their country is thinking of them.
One million boxes donated to Operation Cookie Drop is an incredible milestone. Girl Scouts can achieve anything they set their mind to, especially when it means making a difference for others! Way to go, Girl Scouts!
