Girl Scouts Send Love and Cookies to Frontline Workers at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center
Contributed by: Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast
There’s no wrong way to thank someone, but sending them more than 10,000 boxes of cookies is an incredible (and edible) way to express your gratitude.
The Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast donated thousands of cookies – over five full pallets – to the Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee in order to thank frontline health workers and caregivers.
“We are so appreciative of the Girl Scouts for donating cookies to all of our team members at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center,” said Dori Tooke, VP of Operations at Aurora St. Luke’s. “There is no doubt that this donation of Girl Scout cookies will bring a bright spot to everyone’s day.”
The cookies were distributed to over 7,000 members of Aurora St. Luke’s staff. The Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast have donated more than 53,000 packages of cookie to first responders, food pantries and other community organizations over the past three months.
“This is what we teach our girls to do – lead by example and do your part to support others in your community. We’re delighted to be able to continue to thank so many of the first responders and healthcare workers on the frontline during this pandemic,” said Christy Brown, chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts. “Cookie donations are a fun way we can give back to our communities. Many of our Girl Scouts have also made masks, donated to local pantries and more.”
More than a sweet act of gratitude, donations like this help Girl Scouts grow the next generation of empathetic and community-focused leaders. To learn more about joining or supporting the local Girl Scouts, visit the Girl Scouts of Southeast Wisconsin website.
