Moultrie- Several Girl Scout troops met in Moultrie Saturday afternoon to make 29 care packages to send to soldiers and Marines from Colquitt County.

The girls collected donations from the community. The idea stemmed from one troop leader whose brother is stationed in Kuwait.

"These girls really know nothing about what's going on, and so I wanted them to put their hands on this stuff and actually know that they are sending something to a Marine or someone in the Army to know that there's stuff they're doing without to protect us," says Stacy Cook, leader for Troop 440.

Cook says even though the girls are only sending 29 care packages today, as long as the donations come in they will continue to ship the boxes. Of course, each care package contains at least one box of Girl Scout cookies.
