Operation Thin Mint: Girl Scout Cookies Make a Global Impact

Operation Thin Mint (R) (OTM) sends a taste of home and a note to show we care to service men and women throughout the world.

By selling Operation Thin Mint (R) cookies, San Diego and Imperial Valley area Girl Scouts make sure their local cookie program has a global impact. Since 2002, area girls and their customers have sent nearly 1.5 million boxes of OTM cookies and countless handwritten notes to grateful military troops stationed all over the world.

The process is simple.

Girl Scouts ask their customers to buy Operation Thin Mint(R) cookies. They provide their customers with a receipt, and those cookies are earmarked for a trip overseas.

"Troops halfway around the world look forward to receiving a favorite taste of home from San Diego, said CEO Jo Dee C. Jacob, and a retired Navy captain. "I don't want to disappoint a single sailor, Marine, airman or soldier."

Look for the opportunity to buy your Operation Thin Mint(R) cookies when local Girl Scouts start selling cookies in your neighborhood Sunday, January 31, 2010. Starting Friday, February 19, you'll find Girl Scout troops at booths near malls, shopping centers and other areas in your community. More information: visit
