Thank you letters to Girl Scouts

Thank you to all the Girl Scouts who participated in “Hearts Across the Miles” again this year. The program sends Girl Scout Cookies to deployed service members. Girl Scouts, along with other volunteers, helped pack nearly 150 shipping boxes, which included 6,000 packages of Girl Scout Cookies! 2016 Top Seller Ciara Leal and her family brought more than 200 packages, plus a huge number of boxes from Peggy Riordan’s area. Of the 40 addresses provided to “Hearts Across the Miles,” half came from Girl Scouts.  We received the following notes from service members who received the care packages:

Thank you so much for the care packages you sent to us! We really appreciate the warm and encouraging words within the cards. The cookies were amazing! It really means a lot! We had so many cookies delivered, we shared them with other military members throughout our base. Our team also consists of military members from England, Canada and Australia. We let them know where and who they came from; the great people of Colorado! They, too, were very grateful and appreciative of the cookies. The drawings and cards made us smile and remind us of why we do what we do out here. We do it for each and every one of you.

A special thanks to Al and Julie, Jacqui, Bruce, Silvia, Michelle & Daniel, Bill, and Will, Lockheed Martin, our fellow troops at Buckley AFB, our brothers and sisters from St. Michael’s Catholic Church, The Young Marines, our brothers and sisters from Bethany Lutheran Church, the great city of Lone Tree, the Colorado National Guard, Rangeview High School staff and students, all the wonderful HATM volunteersn and the great people of the Denver Metro Community! And of course, our sweet and dedicated Girl Scouts of America, who without you, none of this would be possible.

God bless all of you!

Very respectfully,

Technical Sergeant John J. Vega

Hi there,

On behalf of the J2 shop for the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) here in Iraq, I wanted to thank you for the massive amount of Girl Scout Cookies- my Soldiers have devoured them! It’s such a blessing knowing that people like you are thinking about us.

CPT Rob Vendley

Your box of cookies arrived and will be shared among grateful soldiers. Thank you so much, nothing better to put smiles on soldier’s faces than Girl Scouts cookies from. Your dedication and hard work is appreciated. Thank you also, for all your prayers and support.

You are my heroes!

Father Emmanuel

I unexpectedly received a wonderful package from your organization this afternoon. My name is Dillon and I am currently stationed in Kuwait. Along with the goodies I also received two wonderful colorings from, Robbie and Chris. I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for all you do. This package was a wonderful surprise and not only lifted my spirits, but also those with whom I am serving. There are only four of us in my office, so I was able to take a few boxes of cookies and some of the goodies for us and I give the rest away to other troops who, like me, always enjoy a good girl scout cookie. Keep up the great work and know your efforts are truly appreciated it. Thanks again from the Camp Buehring CID Office.
