Cookies for a Cause

Committed to giving back to our community, Girl Scouts, Hornets’ Nest Council has always had a strong cookie donation program. In the past, our focus on been on military efforts (through Cookies for the Troops), but in honor of the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts selling cookies, we expanded our efforts to include a local focus to our hometown heroes (fire, police and first responders) and local charities/nonprofits. Want to show love for hometown heroes or your favorite cause? Support Cookies for a Cause by purchasing a box of cookies to give back to your community.

In 2018, we gave back to a wide variety of charities including many that Girl Scouts nominated as causes closest to their hearts.
