Girl Scouts Donate Cookies

A local Girl Scout Troop found a fun way to give to people in need.

During their annual cookie sale, the Scouts asked customers to donate $1.00 to help homeless men, women and children through Portland Rescue Mission. The girls then donated 109 boxes of delicious Girl Scout cookies to help with the hundreds of meals the Mission provides every day.

Lydia and her Girl Scout Troop chose to help homeless men, women and children through their cookie sales this year.

“We wanted to get the girls thinking about helping people who may not have as much,” says Troop Leader Mary Chilton. “We allowed them to choose a local charity on their own.”

Thank you, Troop 41502, for providing a delicious treat for our guests at the Portland Rescue Mission!
