Military members were given a sweet treat in a big way on Tuesday.
Girl Scouts delivered 2,000 cases of Girl Scout Cookies to Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point. This event is part of the annual council-wide service project Operation Cookie Drop, which delivers a taste of home to deployed military women and men. There were approximately 40 Girl Scouts attending the event who got the chance to tour the Aircraft Rescue Firefighters Unit after their delivery.
During the 2019 Girl Scout Cookie Program, Girl Scouts across central and eastern North Carolina collected enough donations for the program to purchase 105,000 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies.
Over the last 14 years, girls from across central and eastern North Carolina have helped contribute to over 1 million boxes of Girl Scouts Cookies donated to military personnel worldwide including U.S. Marine installation Cherry Point in Havelock, U.S. Army installation Ft. Bragg in Fayetteville, Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, NCPacks4Patriots in Ayden, USO of North Carolina at RDU Center and the USO of NC Jacksonville Center.
