Montgomery, AL- Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama (GSSA) is giving back to our troops 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, Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama will deliver cookies to the designated military organizations, such as the USO and local military branches.
Through the Cookie Program, the girls are taught five basic skills that are essential to leadership, to success, and to life: goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
“Operation Cookie Care Package provides a wonderful way for individuals in our community to support Girl Scouts and our brave members of the military,” Karlyn Edmonds, Chief Executive Officer for GSSA said. “OCCP is just a small way of making the world a better place while showing appreciation to our military troops and veterans.”
GSSA has a goal to send over send over 7,000 packages to our armed forces.
Girl Scout Troops can be found at local retail locations every weekend until the program ends. For more information on how to donate to Operation Cookie Care Package, or to locate a troop, please email [email protected] or call (800)-239-6636.
