If you are looking for a chocolatey-mint cookie fix, then local Girl Guides have just what you are looking for.
On Saturday (Sept. 10) in a distribution centre in Delta, more than 55,000 boxes (over 4,500 cases of 12) of chocolatey-mint cookies were picked up by Girl Guide volunteers, including by those who volunteer with groups of girls in Delta.
Every box will help girls fundraise for their exciting Girl Guide activities in 2022/23, like camps, sleepovers, community service, art projects, science experiments, and more. Hundreds of thousands of boxes will be sold across B.C. in the coming weeks.
Cookie lovers can reach out to a Girl Guide they know to support their fundraising goals, or watch for cookie kiosks as girls set up outside of local businesses and at other public locations.
Girl Guide programs are very active in Delta, with more than 20 local groups available for families to choose from in Ladner, Tsawwassen, and North Delta, for girls ages five to 18. Registration is open now at www.girlguides.ca and most groups will begin meeting in September for their first weekly activities.
New volunteers are also urgently needed to support these groups (including several Delta programs that are full with wait lists and seeking additional adult help). Interested women can apply online at www.girlguides.ca to become a mentor to local girls this year and make a difference, while gaining great skills and meeting other Delta neighbours who are engaged in their community as Guiding role models.
