Heavily relying on cookie sales, the Fayette County Girl Scout troops from Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road (GSKWR) are asking for community help.
Not only do these sales raise money for the troops to go towards programs and growth opportunity, but they teach young girls how to set goals and earn their own money. Due to COVID-19, these girls are not able to traditionally sell cookies by going door-to-door.
GSKWR is asking businesses to support its Kentucky Cookie Entrepreneurs by purchasing as many cases as they can, with a minimum of 5 cases for $250.
“Our Girl Scout Troops actually came up with the idea to drive a call to action to the local business community to buy cookies to thank employees and help support all the local social service agencies”, said Haleigh McGraw, Communications Director, Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road. “Our hope is that the business community will step up and buy all of our surplus inventory so that we can continue to serve our 8,000 K-12 girl members throughout Central, Eastern and Northern Kentucky”, she continued.
