When you buy your favorite Girl Scout Cookies, you can also send a taste of home to troops serving overseas. You can donate through the Girl Scouts' "Operation Cookie Care Package"! Here's how you can participate:
Giving back is in the Girl Scout DNA, and this year Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama (GSSA) is giving back through Operation Cookie Care Package (OCCP).
OCCP is a program through which customers make donations to Girl Scout Troops to purchase Girl Scout Cookies for our brave military troops.
When the Girl Scout Cookie Program ends on March 3, GSSA will place a special order. Those cookies will be delivered to the designated military organizations, such as the USO and also local military branches.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program allows girls to develop five essential skills, such as goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. However, in addition to those skills, OCCP allows Girl Scouts to learn how to give back to those who give so much – our armed forces.
To find Girl Scouts selling cookies near you or to donate, visit girlscoutssa.org/cookies, use the official Cookie Finder app, or call 800-239-6636.
