GSSI Donates 620 Cases of Girl Scout Cookies to U.S. Military Through Mission of Moms

Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois delivered 620 cases of Girl Scout Cookies to Marcia Fish, Director of Mission to Moms, a nonprofit in Collinsville with the mission of "supporting our deployed military."

These tasty treats for our U.S. troops were donated through GSSI's "Gift of Caring" program.   Another 500 cases, for 1120 total cases of Girl Scout Cookies, are also being donated to Soldier's Angels, a large-scale nonprofit that "provides aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, their families, and a growing veteran population."

GSSI is so grateful for the generosity of those who supported the Gift of Caring program this year and enabled us to show our support for U.S. military members and veterans.
