COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Girl Scouts in our area have found a new way to support our deployed troops.

The service members will enjoy cookies this spring from a program called Operation Cookies from Home. Until March 10, you can buy cookies and donate them to the girls to ship to the troops.

The program helps support the Girl Scouts by showing different ways to give back to the community. The Girl Scouts will also include notes of thanks to the troops.

"First of all Girl Scouts supports our military especially when they're deployed," said Debbie Caballero, marketing officer for Girl Scouts. "We want them to know that we are thinking about them, that we care about them, and we want to send them something that lifts their spirits while they're away."

If you are interested in donating cookies you can contact the local Girl Scouts office at 706-327-2646.
