Stories from 2016 Cookie Season, Part 2

Girl Scout Cookies don’t just taste great, they also inspired some feel good stories this season. We loved hearing these heartwarming tales!

Girls from Chelmsford Troop 85000

Chelmsford Troop 85000 witnessed an amazing display of generosity at their Cumberland Farms booth sale in January. A man approached their booth, asked how many cookies the girls had left to sell and offered to buy them all. A total of 188 packages! The buyer, who wished to remain anonymous, did not keep any cookies for himself, asking that they be donated to nursing homes and other places the girls deemed worthy.

 

Topsfield Brownie Troop 68019 loved their experience volunteering at a food bank so much, they decided to donate 50 percent of their cookie proceeds to food banks. The troop will work with a local church to purchase, then prepare and serve food for those in need. Thank you for making an impact in your community!

Some Newton Brownies were inspired by their troop’s newest member, who is battling leukemia. They decided to honor her by giving all their Cookies for a Cause to other kids with cancer, resulting in a donation of over 100 cases of cookies to the Dana Farber Jimmy Fund. We are so proud of this troop for showing such compassion to others.

 

The Cadettes and Daisies of Quincy troops 85383 and 62257 look forward to seeing their favorite customers every cookie season. Five years ago, the older girls met an elderly gentleman who told them that he cannot walk past a Girl Scout selling cookies without buying some. Each year he visits their booths, buying the peanut butter varieties

for himself and his dog. As sales were wrapping, the girls realized they still hadn’t seen him—until the final booth sale. The troop leader said, “I’m so glad that my Daisies got to share in this tradition and meet the man whom we look forward to selling to each year. It’s nice to have a loyal, memorable customer to look forward to. He has made an impression on my two troops and I’m sure many more!”

Thanks again to everyone who made this year’s cookie season a success!
