Saturday 4/6/19 I was involved with a local project called Cookies For Soldiers. This was started by a Girl Scout with an idea 10 years ago. She approached her Mom and said I want to buy some cookies for soldiers and brought her Mom Twenty One Dollars. A veterans organization was contacted and before you know it 600 boxes were collected to send to military members that were deployed.
Now 10 Years Later 35,000 boxes of cookies have been collected and sent to the military members.
This is not a Girl Scout Event but a local event held in LaPorte, Indiana. Veterans get together and local Girl Scouts and Brownies jump in and help with packing and loading boxes and boxes of cookies. An estimated number of boxes packed was around 6,500.
This was all started by a 6 year old young lady with a dream of what she could do for the US Military.
