In addition, most locations with also have cookie booths set up with Girl Scout troops selling cookies.
If you are unable to make it to a Duffy’s location that evening, you can also donate to the Cookies for the Military program online at www.cookiesforthemilitary.org. All online donations made on Friday, February 8, 2013 will be entered into a chance to win FREE Girl Scout Cookies for a year!
For the fifth year in a row, GSSEF is sponsoring their Cookies for the Military program. The program provides an opportunity to donate boxes or cases of Girl Scouts cookies to our service men and women domestically or overseas. Cookies for the Military is a great way for our community to support Girl Scouts while sending a “taste of home” to our troops.This year the goal is to collect enough donations for 37,500 boxes of cookies. Because of the generosity of our community members, Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida has sent more than 116,000 boxes of cookies to our troops since 2009.
