Gift of Caring
Gift of Caring is a great way to support military personnel and Girl Scouts at the same time! Last year, Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois collected more than 30,000 boxes of cookies to send to organizations that bring comfort to women and men serving in the armed forces.
The majority of donated cookies go to Operation Care Packages for distribution to active duty military. GSNI also donates to other military and veteran organizations locally.
GSNI is offering an opportunity for troops to help and be involved in the distribution of donated cookies. Troops are entered into a drawing and participating girls in the troop receive a patch. Please go to the cookie contests page and scroll to Gift of Caring Opportunity for more details.
TALK TO A GIRL SCOUT. Any Girl Scout can help you make a donation! You can even use the Girl Scout Cookie Finder to locate a booth site near you.
