When we received our cookie order sheets for my girl scout troop, I noticed a spot to choose to donate a box. I never noticed that before and found that most people were never aware they had the option to donate cookie boxes. I thought it would be a great chance to collect cookies to send to specific Rochester based military units overseas.
After starting our "cookies to troops" mission, I found out that when sending donated boxes to a specific place we would have to cover the cost of shipping. Our troop collected 130 boxes, It was amazing how many people were eager to help out and send a box. We started our troop late but still ended up having a great turnout for our cookies to troops mission.
We are looking for donations to go towards shipping costs. Any bit would help. The cost to ship the cookies is around $220.00, however the minimum "goal" on this site is $500.00. If by chance we raise more than what is needed we will purchase other items to included in the care packages being sent. Soldiers look forward to their care packages and we hope to send them out soon so they get them for Christmas.
