Anyone can help Girl Scouts send cookies to U.S. troops

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Local Girl Scouts are on a special mission to give troops serving overseas a taste of home.

They're sending boxes of their famous cookies to soldiers around the world.

This is the fifth year for Operation Cookie, a partnership between Kentuckiana Girl Scouts and Republic Bank.

The goal is to get people to donate 10,000 boxes to the cause.

Republic Bank started the effort by donating a $5,000 check to buy the first 2,000 boxes.

"This is a wonderful community collaboration. As a retired colonel in the U.S. Army, I can tell you that it's such a wonderful taste of home to receive Girl Scout cookies when you are deployed overseas," says Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana CEO Lora Tucker.

Republic Bank will be accepting donations to buy additional boxes of cookies.
