The Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast are donating holiday goods to military members and their families. Nearly 2,000 boxes of girl scout products, nuts and candies are being given to the USO.
Each year, Girl Scouts offer products to family and friends to purchase during the fall months as a way to support troop activities and services. For those customers who choose to purchase an extra product or would like their purchase donated, the gift is given to the USO for distribution to our military men and women.
This year’s sweets and treats will be presented to the USO by several area Girl Scouts who are “Cookie Captains”, teen Girl Scouts who help mentor younger scouts and who participate in special service projects such as this one.
This donation is part of their annual Gift of Caring program.
