Support our Troops During Stars & Stripes Week

Support our TroopsIn support of Operation U.S. Mint—our cookies to U.S. troops Gift of Caring project– we have established a special emphasis campaign—Stars & Stripes Week, November 7-14.

The week will kick off on the morning of November 7 when Girl Scouts will make a special appearance on WJZ’s Manic Monday with Ron Matz to promote the Girl Scout Cookie Program and the Stars & Stripes Campaign. Tune in to WJZ at 6 am  on Monday November 7 to see us! Want to join in the fun and show your support for Girl Scouts on TV? Contact Danita Terry at dterry@gscm.org.

During Stars & Stripes Week we are asking all Girl Scouts to promote Operation U.S. Mint at their cookie booths by asking customers to show their support for our military troops by purchasing additional boxes of cookies for our soldiers.  We are also asking businesses and companies to participate by purchasing cases of cookies.  Last year we collected and donated nearly 13,000 boxes of cookies for the military.  We hope to top that number this year.  For more information or to place an order in support of Stars & Stripes Week/ Operation US Mint, contact Terry Mercer, Product Sales Manager at tmercer@gscm.org.

During the Stars and Stripes Week, the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland Council Staff is running a toiletry drive for military personnel overseas. We will host a packing party and viewing of the documentary, Lioness, which profiles five women who saw action in Iraq’s Sunni Triangle.  The documentary is part of ITVS’ Women and Girls Lead series. Watch a preview and see behind the scenes footage from the documentary. The packing and viewing party takes place on Friday, November 11 (Veteran’s Day) from 12:30 pm-2:00 pm at the Seton Urban Program and STEM Center.  Admission: purchase two boxes of Girl Scout Cookies (cookies will be available for purchase) or donate  eight travel-size toiletries.  Bring your own lunch; drinks and popcorn are on us.  RSVP to Clarke Fitzmaurice at cfitzmaurice@gscm.org  by November 9.
