ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Alpharetta First United Methodist Church has broken its record for collecting Oreos to send to military overseas.

The church set a goal of two tons for its annual Operation Oreo cookie drive during the month of June. With help from the community, the church nearly doubled its goal, collecting 3.7 tons of cookies.

"The pastors, staff and congregation of AFUMC thank the community for an outpouring of support," said a church spokesperson.

Alpharetta Methodist held the drive throughout June, culminating with a patriotic worship service June 29. Stacks of Oreo packages surrounded the altar, while the choir and orchestra played patriotic music and military veterans were recognized.

The Oreos have been sent to military chaplains in Afghanistan who will help distribute them to service members stationed at forward operating bases Fentry and Gamberi and at Shindand, Kandahar and Bagram air bases.
