Operation Sweet Appreciation - Cookies for the military

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! 

Operation: Sweet Appreciation

Through Operation: Sweet Appreciation, you can help GSWPA send cookies to our military at-home and overseas. Last year, GSWPA Girl Scouts sent more than 38,000 packages to military men and women!

Donations are now closed for the 2016 Girl Scout Cookie program. Please check back in the fall to donate nuts and candy to our military through the MagNut Program!

Gift of Caring Program

Troops can also choose to collect cookie donations for an organization of their choice through the Gift of Caring program. Girls donate cookies each year to local food pantries, shelters, care centers or hospitals.
