Girl Scout Troop 2827 Make a Donation

Troop 2827, besides making a donation of Girl Scout cookies, also spent $150 at Piggly Wiggly and other stores to donate a total of 174.6 lbs to the Waunakee Food Pantry. When selling the cookies, they offered the customers to "If you can't eat them, maybe you can treat them" if they just wanted to make a monetary donation instead of buying cookies. The boxes of Girl Scout cookies sold, 68, resulted in an additional pairing of 68 gallons of milk from the Dane County Dairy Promotion Committee.
