Three Dog Logistics delivers for operation cookie drop.
Baltimore, MD, June 18, 2014 — For Three Dog Logistics, deliveries usually involve thousands of pieces of direct mail delivered to postal facilities around the world. This week, though, some of their shipments took a sweeter approach when trucks filled with cases of Girl Scout Cookies pulled up to Quantico Marine Corps Base, destined for soldiers there.
Three Dog Logistics is proud to be a part of Operation Cookie Drop, a program that puts 70,000 donated packages of Girl Scout Cookies into the hands of military personnel at home and abroad. Through their partnership with Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson, Three Dog Logistics picked up crates filled with cookies in New York, and delivered them to service members — and their families — receiving care in military facilities in the Washington, D.C. area.
John Kennedy, CEO of Three Dog Logistics, welcomed the opportunity to support U.S. troops by volunteering his company’s time, staff, and resources to making cookie drops. “I have enormous respect for the men and women who put their lives on the line every day for our country, and delivering a few cookies seems like such a small token of my appreciation,” says Kennedy.
“What a great day! Thousands of cookies and hundreds of girls scouts, 20 sailors, cadets and an Iraq War veteran and his service dog all helped us make Operation Cookie Drop 2014 load up the best day ever! With the help of Three Dog Logistics who donated a truck to carry the cookies to Andrews Air Force Base and Quantico in Virginia, we know we will be sending a sweet treat to a lot of servicemen and women,” says Alison Bergman, Coordinator for Operation Cookie Drop.
In addition to the gift of cookies, the Girl Scouts included messages of love and support for our troops, in the form of handwritten notes on the exterior boxes. You can view photos at http://threedoglogistics.com/news/how-sweet-it-is.
