Girl Scouts have a long tradition of making the world a better place through community service. Last year, through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, local Girl Scouts donated over 6,000 packages of Girl Scout cookies to food banks throughout their 42-parish coverage area. After this unprecedented year, they want to do even more to create moments of joy for those who truly need it.
Enter: Cookies for a Cause.
Girl Scouts of Louisiana – Pines to the Gulf (GSLPG) is creating moments of joy with drive-through cookie donation booths on Saturday, March 6 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in 5 locations throughout their service area. Donated cookies will benefit local essential workers and area food banks.
“This is one of those rare situations where everyone wins,” said Amaris Harris, Marketing & Communications Director for GSLPG. “The community gets to give back to those who have been holding us all together for almost a year, and girls learn about philanthropy while sharing a little taste of comfort with those who really need it.”
Community members can visit a Cookies for a Cause cookie donation booth at the following locations:
Sutherland’s HomeBase, 515 MacArthur Dr
