Girl Scouts North Carolina Coastal Pines is celebrating 17 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, NCPacks4Patriots 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.
Write a letter/story or draw a picture to be sent to military troops along with the Girl Scout Cookies! Drop off or send your letters to the Raleigh Service Center by April 21, 2023.
Letters can be sent to:
