Operation Cookie Overload: Have you mailed your package?

We received emails from several folks yesterday who were at the post office mailing their Operation Cookie Packages. As you know, yesterday was the military mailing deadline to guarantee delivery by Christmas. However, if you weren’t able to get your packages in the mail yet, please go ahead and mail them anyway. If it’s mailed in the next few days, it has a chance of making it to Afghanistan by December 25th. And if packages arrive overseas a few days late, that’s OK too. The holiday spirit will still be welcome. 

Shannon from Kentucky enlisted her coworkers to help her put together this box of homemade brownies, Rice Krispie treats, chocolate chip cookies, and store-bought cookies.
