If your commute was a little sweeter this week, you can thank a Girl Scout.
On Wednesday, March 23, Girl Scouts took over downtown Chicago for the first of four Loop Site Days this spring. During Loop Site Days, girls sell Girl Scout Cookies in the lobbies of downtown businesses.
Ryeleigh M., 6, and Fabiola V., 5, both Girl Scout Daisies from Troop 55190 in Algonquin, Illinois were excited for their first Loop Site Day.
“We’re saving our cookie money to go to Build-a-Bear,” Ryeleigh said.
“And buying crafts for children at the Ronald McDonald’s House,” added Fabiola.
Meanwhile, Caity S., 10, Zoe V. , 9, and Stephanie B., 10, Girl Scout Juniors from Troop 40306 from Mundelein, Illinois plan to use their cookie money to go camping at Camp Juniper Knoll in East Troy, Wisconsin.
“It feels so grownup to sell cookies and it’s just so amazing that adults are trusting us to do this,” shared Zoe.
“It’s great because we’re cookie bosses and we can decide what to do with the money and where we want to go on trips,” she said.
In addition to meeting new people and learning new business skills, Cara C. an 11-year-old Girl Scout Junior in Troop 41101 from Lake Villa, Illinois enjoys helping people while selling Girl Scout Cookies.
“During our site sales at grocery stores, we offer to help people take their groceries to their car,” she said. “It feels good to give back.”
