Our very own Fox 29 health nut Rachel Leigh chowed down in the annual WILD 95.5 Girl Scouts Cookie Eating Contest at the South Florida Fair. The competition was all to raise awareness for the Girl Scouts' "Cookies for the Military" program.

This year, they hope to send 40,000 boxes of cookies to our military personnel. 


 

JUPITER, FL – For the sixth year in a row, Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida (GSSEF) is sponsoring their Cookies for the Military program.  The program provides an opportunity to donate boxes or cases of Girl Scout cookies to our service women and men domestically or overseas.  Cookies for the Military is a great way for our community to support Girl Scouts while sending a "taste of home" to our troops.

This year the goal is to collect enough donations for 40,000 boxes of cookies.  Because of the generosity of our community members, Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida has sent more than 160,000 boxes of cookies to our troops since 2009.  GSSEF works with two local organizations, Forgotten Soldiers Outreach and America's Moms for Soldiers, to coordinate the delivery of cookies to be included in care packages they send to military personnel.

Girl Scout cookies are $4 per box or $48 per case.  Customers can make a donation to Cookies for the Military at any cookie booth location or by visiting www.cookiesforthemilitary.org.
