Girl Scouts Participates in Cookies for the Military Program: Goal to Donate 37,500 Boxes of Cookies
Posted on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 in Cookies
For the fifth year in a row, Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida (GSSEF) is participating in the 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. GSSEF works with Forgotten Soldiers Outreach and America’s Moms for Soldiers to coordinate the delivery of cookies to be included in care packages they send to military personnel. Girl Scout cookies are $4 per box or $48 per case. Customers can make a donation to Cookies for the Military at any cookie booth location or by visiting www.cookiesforthemilitary.org.
