Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois & Mission of Moms Sending 2,176 Cans of Honey Roasted Peanuts to U.S. Troops

Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois (GSSI) and Mission of Moms are sending 2,176 cans of honey roasted peanuts to members of the U.S. military.  The treats were donated through the "Project Thank You," campaign that allows customers to make a purchase to send to troops during GSSI's Nut, Candy & Magazine (NCM) program this fall.

Giving back to American service members is a traditional part of GSSI product programs.  Thanks to the generosity of our supporters during the 2015 Girl Scout Cookie Program, 1,120 total cases of Girl Scout Cookies were donated to U.S. Troops around the globe.  The 2016 Girl Scout Cookie Program will run Jan. 9-30, with Cookie Booth Weekends on January 9-10, February 26-28, March 4-6 and March 11-13.  Watch for more information on how you can send Girl Scout Cookies in support and appreciation of them military during the upcoming Cookie Program. 

Mission of Moms is an nonprofit based in Collinsville that is dedicated to helping improve the daily lives of our deployed United States military men and women.
