Girl Scouts of Nassau County and DHL Express Ship 1 Million Girl Scout Cookies to U.S. Military Stationed in Bahrain & Afghanistan

On April 17, 2014, Girl Scouts of Nassau County and representatives from DHL Express launched the 9th Annual Operation Cookie by preparing to ship a variety of over 1 million Girl Scout Cookies® to U.S. military serving around the world. 

Operation Cookie is a premiere Girl Scout community project which provides the opportunity for the local community to purchase Girl Scout Cookies to be donated to military personnel, local veterans’ facilities and other organizations.

Representatives from DHL Express joined the Girl Scouts in preparing 60,000 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies for shipment. Because DHL Express is donating its shipping services, GSNC is able to distribute the boxes to U.S. military in oversea to places like Bahrain and Afghanistan.

A BIG Thank You to all those who support Operation Cookie... the people who donate cookies to Operation Cookie, the Girl Scouts who sell cookies for Operation Cookie, the volunteers who support the girls and DHL Express for shipping the Girl Scout Cookies overseas to our Military who are serving. We appreciate everyone who takes part in this program and would like to say THANK YOU!
