Brownie Girl Scout Ariel King of Lewes Troop 1150 and Junior Girl Scout Hannah Maney of Lewes Troop 35 made a delivery of over 40 cases of Girl Scout cookies to the CHFB on Saturday, May 6. The delivery is a donation from all the Girl Scout troops in Service Area 30, which includes the towns in our area.
Helping to stock the cookies are CHFB president Jon DeVoll and troop leaders Amie King and Tristan Engle.
CHFB president Jon DeVoll helps the Scouts understand the mission of the CHFB.
The cookie donation is part of the Girl Scouts “Operation Taste of Home” project. “Operation Taste of Home” encourages girls and the community to make a difference by donating Girl Scout cookies to service members all over the world and to local charities. Since 2003, Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay has donated more than 322,000 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to men and women in the Armed Forces and to numerous charities across the Delmarva Peninsula.
Thank you, Girl Scouts!!!
