The Girl Scouts of Nassau County recently partnered with DHL to ship more than one million Girl Scout Cookies to U.S. troops overseas. DHL picked up the cookies and is transporting them to military service members as a way to show appreciation for their service to the nation.

“Our men and women in uniform leave their families and risk their lives to protect the freedoms that we hold so dear,” said Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano. “These Girl Scout cookies represent the well wishes and prayers of a grateful nation and the anticipation of a safe return.”

This cookie donation is made possible due to the Girl Scouts of Nassau County Operation Cookie program. Operation cookie offers customers the opportunity to help lift the spirits of servicemen and women by purchasing extra boxes or cases of Cookies to donate to the U.S. military.

“We hope that this little piece of home will bring joy to our soldiers who have not stood on American soil in months and, in some cases, years, while serving on their tour of duty,” Mangano added.
