“Giving back to the community is important to Girl Scouts, and Health Care Heroes is a great opportunity for us to show how much these folks mean to us,” said Beth Casey, CEO of the Girl Scouts of Black Diamond. Local businesses, including AssuredPartners, Truist WV Foundation and Suddenlink, have contributed to the Health Care Heroes initiative.
The Cookie Program began in 1917 as a way for troops to finance activities. Today, the program encourages girls to discover their inner leadership potential and use their earnings to create experiences for themselves and their troop — including travel, outdoor adventure, and science, technology, engineering and math programming.
However, the Girl Scouts’ cookie proceeds alone aren’t enough to power the Girl Scout Movement — investing in girls is important year-round, and not just during cookie season. Proceeds from the sale stay local and have led to the support of such things as animal shelters, food banks and more in communities – all while teaching the girls crucial skills like goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
