The Girl Scout Cookie Program help girls learn skills that are essential to leadership, success and life. This program also provides another significant learning opportunity: Girls learn civic engagement through giving back to their community.
After a successful cookie sale last year, Troop 216 decided to donate a portion of their proceeds to the Gift of Caring Program, a cookie donation opportunity in which girls can offer customers cookies as a donation for a local nonprofit organization.
The troop donated 44 boxes of cookies to the Apache Junior Senior Center and 27 boxes to the Council Gift of Caring!
Troop 216 is putting their cookie money to good use and gaining hands-on experience in service and philanthropy. GO GIRLS!
