Girl Scouts Seek Community’s Help to Donate Cookies to U.S. Military Members and Veterans through Operation Salute


Columbus, Ohio — Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland (GSOH) is reminding the community that supporters can send Girl Scout Cookies to military members through the Operation Salute program.  

“Girl Scouts have a long tradition of making the world a better place through community service,” said Tammy Wharton, president and chief executive officer, GSOH.  “Operation Salute is our way of showing appreciation to those who serve and protect our nation by sending them a taste of home.”

Cookies purchased for Operation Salute in the council’s 30-county area will be donated to organizations that will distribute the sweet treats to members of our military, veterans and their families. 

This year, 61,627 packages of cookies were donated through Operation Salute.

Girl Scout Cookie season runs through March 19. To donate, go to to find a Cookie Booth near you or order online. 

Cookies are $5 per package. All proceeds from Girl Scout Cookie purchases stay local and power year-round troop projects and activities.

The Girl Scout Cookie program is the world’s largest entrepreneurial program for girls. It helps girls build the essential skills they need to become future business leaders.
