By donating cookies, you can double your giving efforts by supporting Girl Scouts and donating to others in need at the same time. It's a win-win! Plus, girls learn about philanthropy and the power of giving back to their local communities. So, that's a win-win-win. Even better!
Girls and their troops may participate in Operation Cookie and collect donations of cookies for military personnel serving overseas. We partner with Heroes in Action locally to provide cookies to the military. By selecting “Cookie Boxes Donated” on their cookie donation order form, people can offer a taste of home to military members and their families stationed abroad. They donate the cookies and then we work with Heroes in Action to finalize the logistics and get the cookies delivered to grateful soldiers.
Troops can also choose groups like local food banks, Ronald McDonald House, or homeless shelters to receive donated boxes of cookies. The girls keep their earnings, but the actual cookies are donated to the recipient of their choice. Girls even get to see the donation in action when they deliver the cookies in person to the chosen organization. It’s a wonderful way for the girls to get further involved in their communities and act to make the world a better place.
