Girl Scouts send cookies to troops through Operation Cookie Share

 SPRINGFIELD -- It's Girl Scout cookie time, and again this year you can help send cookies to troops serving overseas.

When you buy cookies from Girl Scouts of Central Illinois, you can choose to have cookies shipped to troops through Operation Cookie Share.

Since the program started in 2010, Girl Scouts of Central Illinois has provided more than $1,000,000 worth of Girl Scout cookies to military men and women.

“We are thrilled to provide this opportunity to support the military and Girl Scouts at the same time,” said GSCI Chief Operating Officer, Kelly Day. “Operation Cookie Share is a great way to show your support to those who are charged with defending our country. We get letters all the time from troops in faraway countries, and they are grateful for a little taste of home. We partner with the military affinity group at State Farm, who ensure that cookies are packed and shipped to servicewomen and men across the U.S. and abroad.”

When you buy your Girl Scout cookies, just tell your Girl Scout you want the cookies to go to Operation Cookie Share. There are no additional shipping fees associated with the Operation Cookie Share Program; cookies are $4.00 per box. You can also visit the Operation Cookie Share website to make a direct donation to the effort.
