Did you buy Girl Scout Cookies last week? From Saturday, Oct. 31 to Sunday, Nov. 8, Girl Scouts all across the state were at polling stations and other communal areas selling everyone\u2019s favorite Girl Scout Cookies. Many of the booths also offered customers to participate in Girl Scouts of Connecticut\u2019s\u00a0Gift of Caring project, Cookies for Heroes. The program gives customers the opportunity\u00a0to say \u201cthank you\u201d our local heroes, veterans, and active duty members of the military\u00a0with a box of Girl Scout Cookies. \u201cVeteran\u2019s Day is right around the corner, so what better way to thank our service\u00a0women and men at home, or serving overseas, with a box of their favorite Girl Scout\u00a0Cookies?\u201d said Ann Nunn-Hacku, Director of Product Sales at Girl Scout of Connecticut.\u00a0\u201cCookies for Heroes is a great program for our girls and community to show our support\u00a0for those who protect our country every day.\u201d Girl Scouts of Connecticut works with several partner organizations to distribute cookies\u00a0to our heroes.
