Operation Cookies from Home
Imagine being deployed half way around the world as a member of our
armed services. Now imagine the pleasure of receiving a taste of home
in a box of Girl Scout Cookies. Imagine wide eyes and hungry
Each year, deployed service members all over the world will enjoy their favorite Girl Scout Cookies as a result of Operation Cookies from Home, a program of Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia. The public is invited to purchase boxes or cases of cookies to be shipped to service members as part of the community service component of the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
Girl Scouts sell cookies to sponsoring members of the public, then work with Georgia military installations and contacts to ensure that they are shipped and delivered to service members overseas. Girls include notes of thanks in the shipment along with the cookies and sometimes receive photos and thank you notes in return.
