What other “sweet” is as American as apple pie?
Girl Scout Cookies of course!
In most parts of the country, this is Girl Scout Cookie Sales season. We are proud to partner with Girl Scout troops and councils nation-wide in their “Gift of Caring” program: Girls collect donations of cookies from their customers, and send the cookies to Operation Gratitude. We then include at least one box of Girl Scout cookies in every one of our 100,000 care packages each year!
Our heroes in harm’s way love receiving Girl Scout Cookies: Not only are they a delicious treat, but they also bring a wonderful reminder of home.
So when you see your local Girl Scouts selling in front of the market, or when the Cookie Order Form circulates through your office, be sure to buy a few extra boxes of Caramel Delites, or Samoas (sorry, we cannot send Thin Mints–the chocolate melts in the desert heat). Ask the Troop if they send them to Operation Gratitude. If not, you can send them directly to us! You can even add a personal note on each box of cookies–a 2″ x 4″ mailing label works great.
