Marine Parents is proud to announce its 9th year shipping Girl Scout Cookies® to Marines in combat zones!
We have 8,400 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies® arriving in our warehouse in May, and on June 6, local Girl Scouts (as well as some Boy Scouts) will be coming to Marine Parents to pack the cookies into boxes to be shipped. To get these cookies to Marines deployed to Afghanistan, we'll need to raise $12,000 to ship the cookies. We need your help collecting donations.
For more than a century, the Girl Scouts of America have bettered their local communities, and the Girl Scouts of Connecticut have chosen to take their plight abroad by serving those who serve us. Each year, the Connecticut Girl Scout troops work hard to make sure our combat deployed Marines receive a taste of home by donating cookies to the Marine Parents’ Care Package Project™. The cookies we all know and love are made here in the USA, and what better way to say “thank you” than with these truly time honored American traditions.
Let your friends, families, and neighbors know we need their help shipping the cookies overseas. You will even be able to monitor our donations throughout the month by scrolling below to view our 2013 Progress Meter. To donate, mail a check or money order to:

A special “thank you” goes out to all who are helping us ship our cookies to our brave Marines in Afghanistan! The Girl Scout cookies are always a favorite with the Marines as the flood of “thank you” notes received afterwards indicates. While the Marines are ever thankful, we are just happy to be delivering a piece of comfort to the young men and women who do so much for us.
Thank you for your help!
