Girl Scout cookies spread cheer
Girl Scout Brownie Troop 1265 recently donated 107 boxes of cookies to the families staying at Fred Hutchinson's Children's Cancer Center.
The cookies were bought through generous donations. While helping people get their annual cookie fix, Girl Scouts also let people donate to the "Gift of Caring." These cookies are then presented to local charities. Troop 1265 was able to donate two boxes of cookies to each of the families at Children's Cancer Center.
Cadette Troop 1629 donated 116 boxes of cookies to Children's Hospital and Junior Troop 3095 donated 100 cookies to Children's Hospital. Other troops donated cookies to Holy Innocents, Children's Services of Sno-Valley and many worthy charities.
Girl Scouts help girls develop into caring, responsible adults and citizens. In partnership with committed adults, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives ‹ such as strong values, social conscience and conviction about their own potential and self-worth. Through Girl Scouts, they discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together.
