197 boxes for Troops and First Responders!

One of the biggest strengths of the cookie program is teaching girls to set goals and follow through. This is exactly what Eva Elaine has done and she has done so while ALSO helping others through the "7th Box." 

Girl Scouts of Central Texas feels it is imperative in raising future leaders to show our appreciation and support to our troops and first responders. Eva Elaine has shown this dedication in her sales and is well on her way to meeting her goal. 

Eva Elaine D.,  with the support of her amazing dad, Patrick, has been working tirelessly to reach her goal of selling 1000 boxes. So far, she has sold almost 700 boxes, of which 197 of those are donations to the Operation Cookie program. That's 197 boxes of yummy Girl Scout cookies that will be sent to US military troops overseas. 

That's $788.00 in monetary donations!

Eva is part of Junior Girl Scout Troop 2062 which is in the Westwood Service Unit. She is nine years old and in the 4th grade. She is proud to be able to earn so much money for her troop and is hoping to reach her goal of selling 1000 boxes so she can earn a week at Girl Scout camp this summer!

We appreciate your work so much, Eva Elaine and Patrick! A big, warm GSCTX salute to you! Good luck reaching your goal!
