Operation: Sweet Appreciation and Gift of Caring

For many years, Girl Scouts has used Girl Scout Cookies as a way to show appreciation for our military men and women through Operation: Sweet Appreciation, and to send sweet treats to local food pantries, shelters, hospitals and other organization through Gift of Caring programs.

Last year, girls in GSWPA sent more than 38,000 packages of cookies to military men and women through OSA. And, girls who participate in Operation: Sweet Appreciation or other Gift of Caring programs sell an average of 70 more boxes than those who don't! Talk about a win-win!
