20,000 cookies for our heroes overseas

Posted by Ellen Krafve - email

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Thousands and thousands of cookies are on their way to our heroes overseas. The Smith County Red Cross has accepted a donation of 500 boxes of cookies from the Girl Scout Council of East Texas. That's 20,000 cookies!

"It's just like a hug from home to receive Girl Scout cookies," said Joyce Brown, with the Girl Scouts. "While they're over there deployed and I know their families here in Smith County are also so happy that people are thinking of them and sending to them."

The cookies were then sent to Texas soldiers deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
