Local Girl Scouts delivered Girl Scout Cookies to local military men and women as part of the Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines’ annual Operation Cookie Drop program.
Now in its 12 year as part of the 2017 Girl Scout Cookie Program, Operation Cookie Drop is a council-wide community service project that delivers a sweet taste of home to military men and women through donated boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. Girl Scouts from across central and eastern North Carolina have helped contribute to over 900,000 boxes of Girl Scouts cookies donated to the military.
Through the 2017 Girl Scout Cookie program, girls collected donations for Operation Cookie Drop during Walkabout Week as well as during booth sales by using donation jars for spare change and creating fun posters and signs talking about this community service project to get the word out.
Operation Cookie Drop represents more than just a sweet treat. The service project aims to show support, kindness, and hope to those serving our country.
Girls who participate in Operation Cookie Drop deliveries experience first-hand how their hard work during the Cookie Program directly impacts military men and women and their families and see that one box of cookies can mean so much to those serving our county.
Girl Scouts Cookies were donated to the military personnel worldwide including U.S. Marine installation Cherry Point in Havelock, U.S. Army installation Ft. Bragg in Fayetteville, Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, NCPacks4Patriots in Ayden, USO of North Carolina at RDU Center, and the USO of NC, Jacksonville Center.
