This week ended with a Girl Scout meeting on Friday evening where my coleader organized and led a take action project for the girls. Part of her group’s requirements for earning a journey bagde was to choose a community service project related to books. So they chose to gather and donate used books to a local nonprofit called Books on Wheels. This organization distributes books to those who are in need in addition to fixing bikes for free.
The event was called Milk and Bookies. After the girls finished filling out and adhering the book plates to the books, they were treated to milk and homemade cookies. Needless to say, that meeting was a hit.
Speaking of cookies, yesterday was probably our final cookie booth sale. We set up shop at the testing for the Qur’an competition. We did get some sales, but we for some reason, we didn’t get near the amount of business that we did at the grocery store. My husband and my coleader’s husband were also there trying to solicit the brothers’ support outside. Maybe immigrants don’t know what Girl Scout cookies are all about. I really don’t know and am unsure why we don’t get much support from our own community.
We did sell out of the most popular cookie(Thin Mints)but do have a bunch of the peanut butter cookies left. That means we just have to try to take the boxes and sell them individually as we are still responsible for paying the Girl Scout council for them regardless whether they are sold or not.
