Operation Chocolate Chip: More cookies are needed to send to soldiers in honor of Pfc. Clark


NEW LONDON -- More chocolate chip cookies, disposable plastic food containers, cardboard boxes with lids (like those that reams of paper come in) and someone with a vehicle big enough to haul several thousand cookies from New London to Minneapolis are needed this weekend to help get those cookies to soldiers in Afghanistan.

Efforts are underway to get a commercial airline to fly the cookies for free from Minneapolis to the Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.
