The idea of Girl Scouts brings thoughts of cookies, camps, songs and memo- ries to many people. Every Spring, thousands of girls across the country set out to sell cookies in hopes of going to a fun camp where she can meet new friends and learn new skills. How- ever, Girl Scouts do not just sell cookies anymore. During product sales (yes, there is more than cookies!), prospective cus- tomers can buy a box for a charity or donate money towards products. Last Spring, local Troop 207 took this to heart. Though each of the girls has a fa- vorite charity, they decid- ed to collect donations to send cookies to people serving in the military. Thus, Treats for Troops was born. At each cookie sale, girls would ask customers to donate change or any money to the Treats for Troops jar, even if they did not want to buy cookies. By the end of cookie sea- son, the girls had collect- ed enough donations to send over 140 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to those serving in the US Military, here and abroad. Using the Family Readiness Pro- gram and a local business, the girls were able to get free shipping to soldiers in want of a bit of home! The three girls, Kara Borrman, Juliana Hueger- ich and Megan Shultze, are sophomores at Norwalk High School. They hope to continue Treats for Troops this year and beat last year's amount! With your help, they can do it! The girls are planning the 4th Annual Craft and Vendor Sale Saturday, Dec. 6, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feel free to stop by and remember that they will take donations for Treats for Troops at any time!
