Support Girl Scouts with Operation Sweet Treat

Feb 20, 2014

In its fourth year, Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont (GSCP2P) is continuing its council-wide service project, Operation Sweet Treat, to send Girl Scout cookies to military servicemen and women.

With support from the public, as well as businesses, churches and civic organizations, GSCP2P plans to collect 26,000 packages of cookies and 1,000 letters of encouragement to send in care packages to troops serving in the United States and overseas. In the past three years of the service project, 85,653 boxes of cookies and thousands of letters have been collected and shared.

Operation Sweet Treat is a great way for the community to support Girl Scouts while sending a “taste of home” to American soldiers. GSCP2P works in conjunction with NCPacks4Patriots to ensure every package sold for Operation Sweet Treat makes it to a current U.S. military member or veteran.  Girl Scouts who participate in the service project earn a special patch.

Girl Scout cookies are $4 a box or $48 per case and will be available through March 9. Customers can buy a box for Operation Sweet Treat at any cookie booth location. Donations can also be made online to the Operation Sweet Treat campaign at For more information, call 800-672-2148.
