Grammy’s Cookie Convoy, a program that sends chocolate chip cookies and personalized notes of encouragement to American servicemen and women in Iraq and Afghanistan, is looking for help in sending the next batch of 5,000 cookies overseas.

“Everyone appreciates being remembered with something sweet on Valentine’s Day,” said Marlene Summers, founder of the Montgomery County nonprofit group. “It’s important to let our troops know we care.”

Volunteers will assemble from 2 to 4 p.m. Feb. 5 at the Bentwater Yacht Club to box cookies, complete customs forms and prepare handwritten notes of encouragement and support for military personnel serving overseas.
