FORT BRAGG, N.C. - Fort Bragg's Soldiers Support Center will be the site for Operation Cookie Drop from 10 a.m.-noon Thursday, May 17.

Girl Scouts will deliver Girl Scout cookies to Fort Bragg as part of the council's annual program. Army Community Service's, Installation Volunteer Services, is assisting with the coordination and distribution at Fort Bragg.

This year, the Girl Scout council is able to donate nearly 100,000 boxes of cookies. Those cookies are then shipped overseas to military personnel serving from Camp Lejeune, Fort Bragg, and Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. In addition, USOs in Jacksonville and Raleigh, and the North Carolina branch of Give2TheTroops based in Greenville distribute Girl Scout cookies to the military personnel that they serve.

This is the eighth year of Operation Cookie Drop and more than half-a-million boxes of cookies will have been shipped to military troops.

"The pure generosity of our supportive community makes it possible for us to donate so many cookies to our military men and women," said Rusine Mitchell Sinclair, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts - North Carolina Coastal Pines.
