Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois would like to thank the supporters of the 2011 Troop 2 Troop Cookie Share Program. Through the generosity people in our communities and the hard work of our Girl Scouts, we have collected more than 31,000 boxes of cookies that will be sent to our troops overseas. This is more than double the amount collected last year. Thanks to all who purchased cookies for our Troop 2 Troop program!
We would also like to thank Iowa’s Bravest and Riverbend Troop Support for coordinating the transportation of the cookies to our men and women serving overseas.
Didn’t get a chance to purchase cookies or donate cookies to our military troops? Be ready for your opportunity when the girls sell again next February!
Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development program for girls where girls can have fun, make new friends and learn new things in a safe all-girl setting. For more information, visit GirlScoutsToday.com or call your local Girl Scout Leadership Center at 800-798-0833.
