RIDGELAND, MS (WLBT) - A group of local Girl Scouts was sending a sweet treat to our servicemen and women overseas.  Girl Scout Troop 5744 out of Madison set up shop outside Mama Hamil's in Ridgeland to ask for donations.  People can buy a box of Girl Scout cookies, then the girls will send them to Mississippi and Louisiana soldiers in Afghanistan.

The goal is to support a morale tent in time for Mardi Gras with a variety of their favorite tasty treats.

"They know that we haven't forgotten and our girls haven't forgotten.  The grown ups haven't forgotten either," said troop mother Carrie Barksdale,"

Troop 5744 planned to be outside Mama Hamil's Saturday, March 6th as well.  Each box of cookies is $3.25.
