Senator Flanagan To Join Girl Scouts For Operation: Cookie

 

Senator John J. Flanagan (2nd Senate District) and local Girl Scout troops from Suffolk County will join together on Thursday, June 8th to bring a feeling of home to United States servicemen and women overseas. Senator Flanagan will join the Girl Scouts to host Operation: Cookie in Smithtown from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The event will take place in the lobby of 260 Middle Country Road in Smithtown, where Senator Flanagan's district office is located.

Operation: Cookie allows local residents to purchase cookies which will be sent by the Girl Scouts to those serving overseas. To offer variety, the full line of Girl Scout cookies will be available through the program including Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs and other varieties will be available to send overseas to U.S. soldiers.

Residents can sponsor cookies by filling out a sponsorship form which includes a place for your name and a personal message to the troops. The cookies, which cost $3.50 per box, may be paid for by check, credit card or cash.

Cookies will also be available for individual purchase. A portion of each sale will be returned to the Suffolk County Girl Scouts (GSSC) which is the largest youth-serving agency in Suffolk County, serving more than 42,000 girls.

"This program is a great way for all of us to let those in our military know that we care about them and that we support them. What better time than right after Memorial Day to remember those who are protecting our way of life. I invite everyone in the community to join with us to personally send their thoughts and a taste of home to our troops," stated Senator Flanagan. "I applaud all of our local Girl Scouts troops who have volunteered countless hours for this effort."
