Hampden Girls Scouts offering cookie drive thru

Written by

HAMPDEN - A local Girl Scout Troop has a new twist on an old tradition.

This weekend, Hampden Girl Scout Troop 5 is holding its "2nd Annual Drive-Thru Cookie Booth."


Scouts will be posted at three stations along the town office parking lot taking orders, money, and handing over the goods. All without customers leaving their climate-controlled cars.


As an added incentive, part of the proceeds goes to a charity the girls chose themselves.


"We are helping kids who have cancer," said Girl Scout Samantha. "It makes me feel really good to make a difference in the world."


The group even accepts credit cards.


They will be selling cookies at the town office Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
