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, you 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.”
Last year more than 66,000 packages of Girl Scout Cookies were donated as part of Operation: Cookie Drop. This year Girl Scouts of Central Indiana is hoping the community will donate more than 100,000 packages. Donations may be tax deductible and start at just $5.

We're Girl Scouts
We're 2.5 million strong—1.7 million girls and 750,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
