Injured soldiers to receive Girl Scout cookies as part of Leesburg Brownie troop’s fundraising campaign
Members of the military who have become sick, injured or wounded from service in Afghanistan, Iraq and Kuwait will soon receive some Girl Scout cookies thanks to a Leesburg Brownie Troop and the local community.
The Brownie troop is partnering with Landstuhl Hospital Care Project to send boxes of popular Girl Scout cookies overseas. Through out the recent Girl Scout Cookie selling drive, the Brownies offered customers the option to donate boxes of cookies to the hospitalized overseas.
Going Postal is underwriting the shipping to send the 350 donated cookie boxes to LHCP headquarters in Virginia where they will then be distributed overseas to troops at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany and field hospitals in combat areas such as Afghanistan and Iraq.
