Mary’s Place Girl Scout Troop beat their cookie sales goal – selling over 5,000 boxes of cookies – surpassing their goal of 2,000 by 150 percent.

“BIG thanks to our community who came by our in-person cookie sales in March (including at Molly Moon’s Ice Cream in Columbia City!) or ordered online and bought over 5,000 boxes of cookies,” Mary’s Place Chief Communications Officer Linda Mitchell told The B-Town Blog. “Our Mary’s Place troop did an amazing job and had a lot of fun learning about customer service, making change, tracking inventory, leadership skills, and more! They had a goal to sell 2,000 boxes so they could go on a camping trip and are now busy planning that adventure for later this summer!”
