Update: The event raised $1,090 in cookie donations for the troops and sales for the Girl Scouts.

Join Officer Bobby Jira and the Girl Scouts of Western Washington in donating to “Operation Cookie Drop” from 9-11 a.m. on March 18 at the Mercer Island Police Department.

The boxes of cookies will be donated to men and women currently serving the U.S. Participants will be supporting local Mercer Island Girl Scout troops, providing delicious treats to overseas military personnel and can even buy a few boxes for their own families to enjoy.

“This may be your last chance to purchase these seasonal gems (Samoas are my fave), as the 2017 Cookie Season ends on March 19,” MIPD’s Leslie Burns wrote in a post on the Mercer Island Police and Emergency Management Facebook page.

The Girl Scouts will be accepting all credit cards, cash and checks (made out to “GSWW – Girl Scouts of Western Washington”) during the event.

Mercer Island firefighters will be there from 10-11 a.m., and they and Officer Jira will be available for photos.
