National Guard gratefully accepts Gift of Caring donation

 CONCORD, NH – Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains donated 10 cases of Girl Scout Cookies to the Vaccination Joint Task Force of the New Hampshire National Guard in Concord on Wednesday, April 28. As the Girl Scout Ambassadors of Troop 20507 brought the cases of cookies into the site at the Steeplegate Mall, those inside clapped and cheered. Capt. Ryan O’Neal thanked the Girl Scouts for the cookies.

The National Guard has been coordinating the effort to provide COVID-19 vaccinations at that location since January, and O’Neal said they fully expected to reach 90,000 shots given by this past Sunday, May 2.

The cookies are part of the council’s Gift of Caring/Hometown Heroes program, through which more than 30,000 packages of cookies have been donated to the military and essential workers across New Hampshire and Vermont, thanks to generous donations by the public.
