Girl Scout cookies arrive in town: 'It's fun to get to talk to everyone'
SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - Girl Scout cookie season has arrived.
On Thursday, troops in Springfield unloaded more than 21,000 cases of cookies to a warehouse on Gateway. The boxes will be distributed to 14 troops in Springfield.
Many of the girl scouts are selling cookies to raise money for community service projects.
Fifteen-year old Kalani Miller said, in the past, she has volunteered with different animal shelters and senior homes in the area. This year, her goal is to sell 225 boxes.
"I've always been a people person so it's fun to get to talk to everyone," Miller said. "But I also just love the experience of getting to sell to people and to be seen on a professional level."
Girl Scouts will be selling cookies in Eugene and Springfield from February 16th to March 11th.
