Girl Scouts of Indian Waters Council are asking if people want to purchase cookies for soldiers overseas. They call the project "Operation Thin Mint". When you buy girl scout cookies, you'll have the option to purchase some for soldiers as well.

The Girl Scouts get money, which goes towards projects in the community; and soldiers get a taste of home. The problem is finding the money to ship the boxes over. It costs over ninety cents to ship one box. So, local business are chipping in to pay for the costs; however, with all the cookies being bought for the soldiers, the scouts need more money.

If you would like to donate, to help ship the cookies call 835-5331.
