Girl Scouts Offer More than Just Cookies
The Girl Scouts group is pretty much synonymous with the idea of cookies. But did you know they offer much more? This holiday season, consider picking up a gift from one of five retail shops run by the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania (GSEP). The stores offer traditional sashes and badges as well as books, jewelry, clothing and more. Gift cards are also available for that picky princess you just don’t know what to get.
There are more than 41,000 Girl Scouts and more than 14,000 Girl Scout volunteers in Eastern Pennsylvania alone. Proceeds from the sales directly support the GSEP Council, going towards programming and activities for girls in the nine-county territory including Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Chester, Delaware, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton and Philadelphia counties. Shopping at a GSEP store is a great way to support the girl scout in your life, as well as your local community. For store locations, visit http://www.gsep.org/shop/shop.php.Can’t get there? You can shop online, too! So, repeat after me, “On my honor, I will try” to do some good with my shopping dollars this holiday.
