Do you have a soldier currently serving, or know of a veteran or a recovering soldier? If so, then learn more about how the Connecticut Cookie Platoon can put smiles on our soldiers’ faces by sending a taste of home to the protectors of home! This is an awesome organization and YOU can be part of their mission too!
Who is the Cookie Platoon?
The Connecticut Cookie Platoon is a growing group of volunteers dedicated to the proposition that soldiers presently serving, those who are recovering, and military veterans need never be without reminders of home and the people who love them and respect the job they do. And what better way to show our appreciation and provide a few moments of familiar comfort than to send fresh-baked cookies?
In each shipment, every soldier receives five containers of cookies. Each container holds approximately a dozen assorted cookies.
All boxes are shipped through the United States Postal Service. Each box costs $10.00 to ship.
It can take anywhere from one to three weeks for each soldier to receive the cookies, depending on deployment location.
The mission of the Connecticut Cookie Platoon is to get America baking homemade cookies once a month for our troops, veterans, or recovering soldiers.
You can help them accomplish their mission in four ways. FYI – Cookie Platoon is no longer in operation.
