INDIANAPOLIS (WTWO/WAWV) – Girl Scouts of Central Indiana is asking for the public’s help to show support to local military members, first responders, and health care workers. Now through the end of April, people can purchase Girl Scout Cookies that will then be donated to local heroes who put their lives on the line.

Operation: Cookie Drop is a council-wide service project that provides packages of Girl Scout Cookies to local military men and women, veterans, firefighters, police officers, EMTs, health care workers and more while also supporting critical programs and opportunities for Girl Scouts.

“This is a perfect way to thank the brave and dedicated people who are serving our country and our local communities,” said Danielle Shockey, CEO for Girl Scouts of Central Indiana. “By donating Girl Scout Cookies through Operation: Cookie Drop, you’re doubling your efforts by supporting Girl Scout troops and showing your appreciation for our local heroes with a box of delicious treats.”

More than 66,000 packages of Girl Scout Cookies were donated as part of Operation: Cookie Drop in 2020; for 2021, Girl Scouts of Central Indiana hopes the community will donate more than 100,000 packages. Donations may be tax deductible and start at just $5. To show support, visit www.girlscoutsindiana.org/operationcookiedrop.
