Pillsbury’s Flag Sugar Cookie Dough supports vets


Just in time for Memorial Day and the 4th of July, Pillsbury has launched a new American flag cookie dough that helps military families in need.

New Pillsbury Salute to Service Sugar Cookie Dough is created in partnership with Operation Homefront, an organization that helps military families return to civilian life after discharge from the military. The cookies are ready to bake and are decorated with an American flag, making them perfect for patriotic barbecues this summer.

Until the end of August, Pillsbury will donate to Operation Homefront for every package of dough purchased, up to $150,000. To make sure your package of cookie dough leads to a donation, go to Pillsbury.com/mission and enter the code on your package. For each code entered, Pillsbury will donate 10 cents.
