Everything girls do in Girl Scouts is designed to help them become leaders of tomorrow. Honoring leaders of today, like our military personnel, is part of how Girl Scouts can learn about and build their own leadership skills. With these leaders in mind, Girl Scouts collect donations each year when selling Girl Scout Cookies so that they can send a “taste of home” to troops serving miles away from home.

Over the last ten years, Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines has donated nearly 800,000 boxes of cookies to our military men and women the Operation Cookie Drop. This program is an important ingredient of our Girl Scout Cookie Sale and is a council-wide community service project for our Girl Scouts.

Delivering a sweet taste of home to deployed military personnel can be as easy a donation jar for spare change and creating fun posters talking about Operation Cookie Drop for cookie booths. Another great tip comes from Girl Scout Reagan H. of Albertson:

“I create a letter each year to send to family, friends and local businesses. In the letter, I explain the Operation Cookie Drop program and talk about my sales goals. I usually include a picture of myself from a past cookie booth. I love the Operation Cookie Drop program because it provides a way for me to support our local military heroes.”

During the 2015 Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program, Reagan collected enough donations to contribute 569 boxes of cookies to Operation Cookie Drop. Yay, Reagan! With Operation Cookie Drop, girls Like Reagan learn the importance of giving back to their community and—in some small way—thank our military personnel.

Donating to Operation Cookies Drop is a Win-Win! Not only do you support our military, but your donation contributes to a Girl Scout’s overall sale proceeds. This is also a great way for customers with dietary restrictions to support Girl Scouts in their neighborhoods. If you can’t eat ‘em, treat ‘em!

So this year, be sure to support Operation Cookie Drop and say “Thank You” to all who serve.
