Troop proceeds from selling cookies can be used for fun, like taking a trip to Disney World!
Troop 35580 recently returned from a five-night, six-day trip visiting Disney Springs, Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom. When visiting Animal Kingdom, girls earned their Animal Habitat patch to enhance their Girl Scout experience.
“We saw the true meaning of sisterhood. They (Girl Scouts) all showed their courage and strength. Many of the girls stepped outside their box and rode rides they would have never ridden at all the parks,” said Troop Leader Kailey Gernenz.
The troop paid for this trip with the proceeds collected from selling 22,925 boxes of cookies over the past three years.
“Like Walt Disney says” IF YOU CAN DREAM IT, YOU CAN DO IT.” That is what got us to Disney,” said Kailey.
The troop made many great memories and has set another goal for 2025 to return and go to Sea World.
Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana created a plan to help troops continue to reach their cookie goals.
For every online shipped order (Digital Cookie, Ship-to-Customer) placed and paid for by a customer between February 27 and March 20, the troop will receive $1.15 ($1.25, if the troop opted out of rewards) per package as troop proceeds.
Girl Scouts, remember to email your customers on February 27 with your new Digital Cookie link.
