Operation Cookie Drop: A Sweet Idea

leave a comment »

The Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina want to sweeten things up for active military personnel through a program dubbed “Operation Cookie Drop.”

Amber Atkinson is the Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina field director. Her husband, Preston, served in Afghanistan.

“Operation Cookie Drop is a program that ships cookies to men and women serving overseas,” she said. “It’s a partnership between Girl Scouts of Eastern South Carolina and Blue Star Mothers. They (are) a group of moms who have children in the military and organize the shipping of cookies.”

Atkinson said the goal is to ship 9,700 cases of cookies through the program to help celebrate the Girl Scouts’ 97th birthday March 12.
