Since 2007, Operation Cookie Drop brings Holiday Cheer to dorm residents who are away from home during the Holiday season. Held in mid-December, volunteers from all over the county join forces, year after year, to help bring this event to life.
Dover Air Force Base houses approximately 550 dorm residents. Dorm residents are single airmen who are new to the military. For many of these young Airmen, this is their first holiday season away from home.
COVID-19 has given us the opportunity to revamp the program with safety measures in mind while still providing a token of appreciation to our young dorm residents.
Help us reach our goal of providing a gift to all of our Dover Air Force Base dorm residents!
Gifts will include: $5 gift card, a prepackaged cookie, package of hot cocoa, candy cane, a cup, and most important, a message of support from our community members!
Stay Tuned for Volunteer opportunities the day of the event.
In the event that we exceed our goal; funds will be used to support a Dorm Resident Event during the next year.
If you would like to donate, please donate $8 per Airman you would like to sponsor. Your donations are greatly appreciated!
