In rainy weather and beautiful smiles, a group of dedicated Girl Scouts members unloaded 20 cases of cookies for donation to the Fisher House, May 17.

“We have a program called Operation Cookie Drop,” said Kelly Griffin, director of product sales. “That design for the girls to take donations and at the end of sales. This year we had about 95 thousand total boxes of cookies. Every year, we donate cookies to various military organizations in our county and new this year we added Fisher House.”

At this event, the scouts received a tour of the house from James Dixon, who is a Fisher House manager.

During the tour, he explained the purpose of the organization, how it benefits the service members and their spouses.

The Scouts donated to military personnel worldwide, including U.S. Marine installation Cherry Point in Havelock, U.S. Army installation Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, NCPacks4Patriots in Ayden, USO of North Carolina at Raleigh-Durham International Airport Center, and the USO of NC, Jacksonville.

Over 3,113 cases of Girl Scout cookies were delivered Gito Bragg by local scouts.

During this year’s Girl Scout Cookie Program, Girl Scouts across central and eastern North Carolina collected enough donations for the program to purchase thousands of boxes of Girl Scout Cookies.

Cookies included in the delivery were thin mints, Peanut Butter Patties, and Tagalongs.

Since 2005, the scouts have hit the mark of one billion cookies they have sold. The organization is also accepting new members who would be interested in becoming a girl scout.
