The idea for the program, now partnered with groups like USO of Georgia, Hugs for Soldiers, Wounded Warriors, and the Atlanta VA Medical Center, grew out of more than 13,000 girls’ desire to do something for area residents serving in Afghanistan, on the high seas, and other spots across the globe. “Girl Scout Cookies represent a comfort of home,” said CEO Amy Dosik. “This is an opportunity to show our support of families with loved ones on active duty, and a great way to teach Girl Scouts the importance of giving back to the community.”
