Moyock Girl Scout Donates Cookies to Sheriff’s Department

There’s a lot more to Girl Scout Cookies than what’s in the box. For years, Girl Scouts across the country have used Girl Scout Cookies to show their appreciation for men and women who serve the community. Following this tradition, on Monday, April 13, Girl Scout Junior Genesis from Moyock, paid a visit to Currituck County Sheriff Susan Johnson to donate cookies for the department to enjoy.

While at the sheriff’s office, Genesis had the opportunity to visit with Sheriff Johnson and share her experiences in Girl Scouts. Genesis sold over 100 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies this year and told Johnson about her plans for her cookie money—she wants to use it to go to Girl Scout camp this summer. Genesis has been a Girl Scout for four years and enjoys getting to make a difference in her community through Girl Scouts.

Sheriff Johnson plans to share the cookies with members of the sheriff’s department, as well as give some of the sweet treats to residents at a nearby assisted living facility.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the world’s largest girl-led business and the nation’s leading financial literacy and entrepreneurial program for girls. Through the program, girls learn skills that will last them a lifetime, such as goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
