Troops can also choose specific groups to receive donated packages of cookies through our Troop Gift of Caring program.  The girls keep their earnings, but the actual cookies are donated to the recipient of the troop’s choice.  Girls even get to see the donation in action when they deliver the cookies in person to their chosen organization.  It’s a wonderful way for the girls to get further involved in their communities and act to make the world a better place.
