Operation Cookie Drop | Southwestern Illinois College

Cookies of Compassion

We’re seeking homemade cookies, gift cards and/or monetary donations, which will be collected and shared with troops at Scott Air Force Base who are unable to be with their families over the holidays.

Donations will be picked up at the Belleville Campus on Wednesday, Dec. 14.

Campus drop-off days are:

A few notes to remember:

  • Due to extreme allergies, containers with cookies made with nuts should be marked accordingly.
  • SWIC is once again partnering with Eckert’s. They will donate a dozen cookies for each dozen purchased at Eckert’s for the troops. Be sure to mention Operation Cookie Drop to the cashier.
  • Gift cards of any denomination to local businesses are a great way to participate. This effort has been received with overwhelming gratitude! No baking required!
  • We have coordinated with SAFB to accept cash donations which will be used to purchase gift cards to the Base Exchange or Commissary.
  • Gift cards and cash donations can be brought to the campus drop-off sites on the dates/times specified in the aforementioned flyers.

Please help in making this another successful campaign for our troops at SAFB!
