Operation Cookie Drop – Giving back to our military
Operation Cookie Drop is a program where cookie customers can purchase Girl Scout Cookies and donate them to US military personnel. Our 2014 Operation Cookie Drop goal was 133,000 packages, a 3% increase over last year’s donations. However, during the 2014 Cookie Sale, Girl Scouts of Western Washington customers donated 143,618 boxes of cookies – that’s more than a 9% increase over last year!
Thank you, western Washington, for your generous support! Through Operation Cookie Drop, girls (and customers!) can learn the importance of giving back to their community and, in some small way, thank our military personnel. This is also a great way for customers with diet restrictions to support Girl Scouts in their neighborhoods.
The cookies collected go to military bases and the Puget Sound USO (United Services Organization) to distribute to all branches of the military.
