GSCB - Cookie Program - Tailgate for Troops

In 2004, my daughter became a Girl Scout. When January came around and it was Girl Scout Cookie selling time, I learned about a great program that the Girl Scouts were involved in.

This program was started in 2003 after the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay Council and the Girl Scout troops had many inquiries from the community on how to help the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces overseas. The result from that was a program called Operation Taste of Home. This program allows the Girl Scouts to donate cookies to the USO located at Dover Air Force Base. Since the year 2003,over 40,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies have been sent to our Armed Forces.

Thank you for your support.
