Troops 2 Troops: Girl Scout Cookie Time!

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 usYou can even add a personal note on each box of cookies–a 2″ x 4″ mailing label works great.

About Operation Gratitude

Operation Gratitude annually sends 200,000+ care packages to Veterans, First Responders, New Recruits, Wounded Heroes, their Care Givers, and to individually named U.S. service members deployed overseas and their families waiting at home. Each package is filled with food, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, as well as personal letters of support. Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of the Military and First Responder communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for civilians anywhere in America to express their appreciation to all who serve our nation. Each package contains donated product valued between $45 and $100 and costs our organization $15 to assemble and ship. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than 1.6 Million Care Packages.

    Though Operation Graditude has ended our Daisy troop decided to send GS Cookies to our church’s Military overseas. Is there a cost effective way to mail these boxes to our servicemen/women? Thank you
