Nassau County, NY - April 18, 2014 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano joins the Girl Scouts of Nassau County and DHL, the Specialists in International Shipping, to ship more than one million Girl Scout Cookies to U.S. troops overseas. DHL will pick up cookies and transport them to military servicemen and women as a way to show appreciation for their valued service to our country.

The cookie send-off took place at the Girl Scouts of Nassau County Headquarters earlier today in Garden City. Girl Scouts of all ages helped package the Cookie cases for delivery. This Cookie donation was made possible due to the Girl Scouts of Nassau County Operation Cookie program. Operation Cookie offers customers the opportunity to help lift the spirits of servicemen and women by purchasing extra boxes or cases of Cookies to donate to the U.S. Military.
