While the pandemic presented challenges for traditional cookie selling options, Girl Scouts got creative and put their problem-solving skills to good use during the Girl Scout Cookie season.
Girl Scouts in our Community Outreach program collaborated with leaders at HellermannTyton North America to organize a company-wide drive-thru cookie booth. Employees and their families across the country ordered cookies online, and Girl Scouts hosted a drive-thru for local employees to pick up their cookies. In total, over 700 boxes of Girl Scout cookies were sold and proceeds from the cookie sale funded future adventures for Girl Scouts.
“HellermannTyton North America holds many of the same values as Girl Scouts, including a people-focused approach, serving the community, and enhancing career opportunities,” said Terry Tuttle, President of HellermannTyton North America and GSWISE board member. “We wanted Girl Scouts to have the opportunity to have a really successful cookie sale, and this was a great lesson for the Girl Scouts to gain confidence and practice a business model in flexible and creative ways.”
“I loved seeing how driven, organized, and enthusiastic the Girl Scouts were - they owned that drive-thru despite the cold weather,” said Deanna De La Pasqua, Total Rewards Manager at HellermannTyton North America.
Leaders at HellermannTyton North America look forward to hosting more drive-thru cookie booths in the future with Girl Scouts.
