During this year’s booth sales, Girl Scouts sold thousands of boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to people who requested that they be donated to the men and women serving in our Armed Forces.
Interbake/ABC Bakers, GSME’s official Girl Scout Cookie baker, also made a large contribution that bolstered the total number of boxes of cookies to over 44,000!
On Flag Day, June 14, the gigantic mountain of cookie boxes was loaded onto the Operation Cookie Drop tractor trailer truck and delivered to military drop-off points in South Portland, Augusta, and Bangor. From there, the Maine Air National Guard Family Services Division and Operation HomeFront helped deliver the cookies to our soldiers at home and abroad.
