Girl Scouts give back to community with “Cookie Share” program
Fort Wayne, IN – While you’re picking up a few boxes of tasty Girl Scout cookies this weekend, remember that you can support a Girl Scout community service project at the same time! The Cookie Share program allows girls the opportunity to sell virtual “Cookie Share” cookies that are distributed to our nation’s soldiers and other charitable organizations such as food banks.
Through the Cookie Share program, customers can purchase boxes of cookies to be donated to military troops, hospitalized veterans, local food banks and other charitable organizations. The program gives those in need a familiar treat they wouldn’t otherwise be able to enjoy.
The cost of a box of cookies in the Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana council is $4. The sale continues through March 4. To buy cookies:
- Contact any Girl Scout
- Stop by a cookie booth; find locations near you by using the Girl Scout Cookie Finder at www.gsnim.org
- Download the Girl Scout Cookie Finder app on your iOS or Android mobile device and press “Find Cookies Now”
