Rowlett Brownie/Girl Scout with a Cookie Goal for Oversea Troops


Mmmmm, Girl Scout Cookies! Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Sandwiches, Samoas ... ahhh a lil' taste of heaven! ... Who doesn't love Girl Scout Cookies?!? Well, if you're one that doesn't like them, that's ok, but I urge you to still read on. You see, Lake Ray Hubbard has a Rowlett neighborhood Brownie (Girl Scout) that has this amazing goal that's as big as our beautiful lake!

Miss Stephanie is a 3rd grader at Liberty Grove Elementary in Rowlett. Like all girl scouts & brownies, she set a goal for the amount of cookies she wanted to sell. Her goal is ... wait for it ... 2,011 Boxes! That's right, 2,011! Now here's the kicker, her goal is not just to sell 2,011 Boxes but Stephanie's goal is to sell 2,000 for the "Gift of Caring" program that allows the girls to collect donations of cookies for Military Personnel serving overseas! You see, Stephanie's best friend, Emily, told her about all the yuckie food her dad ate while he was overseas serving in Afghanistan. Stephanie decided that all the soldiers then needed to have good food & really, what's better than Girl Scout Cookies?!? (smart girl!) So with that, she made her goal ... figuring her family would order 11 boxes & the rest of her goal was for the Soldiers!
                                                       Girl Scout Cookies
I'm so inspired at this young girls' caring, unselfish nature & her desire to have "good food" sent over to our troops, giving them a sense of home! Unfortunately, this Friday 28th is the end of the Pre-Order, BUT not to freat, you can still pick up some boxes & even buy boxes for our overseas troops at your local grocery store.

If you'd like to join me in helping Stephanie with her amazing goal, which I hope you do, you can email her mom directly with your order or you can order Online (of course) ... Go to: In the "Donation" Info Box, please note "Stephanie W - for the Troops" in the Comments Field & select Troop 334 on the Drop Down Menu.
