INCON —During the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Program, Girl Scout Troop 30197 collected 243 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to send to U.S. military overseas and the boys at The Treutlen House.

On March 12, the 110th birthday of Girl Scouts, the troop delivered 163 boxes to Treutlen House. While there, the girls enjoyed a tour of the homeled. Teresa Jenkins and visited with all the animals — including dogs, cats and a screaming peacock!

“Treutlen House is always excited to involve the community and we are continued to be blessed with many donations,” Treutlen House Director Kristen Wert said. “Whether it is food, paper products, cleaning supplies or hygiene products, Treutlen House is very grateful. The boys will surely enjoy all the cookies that were delivered and we hope the girls will remember their visit to the house.”

At Girl Scouts, the next opportunity to stand up, speak up and take the lead is never far away. The possibilities for greatness are truly endless.
