Cookies from Home

In 2018, Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey donated 86,840 packages of cookies to the Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc., the New Jersey Army National Guard, and local food pantries through the Cookies from Home program.

During order taking and cookie booth sales, customers are able to designate cookie purchases as donations for our Cookies from Home program, which are later delivered to Blue Star Mothers of America and the National Guard, who arrange distribution of the cookies to our troops. In addition, a portion of the donated cookies are provided to local food pantries.
