New Jersey Girl Scout Makes Helping Children Her Top Priority
Tori, an Ambassador Girl Scout from Girl Scouts of Central and
Southern New Jersey, always knew she wanted to use her cookie earnings
to help kids who were less fortunate than her. That’s why, for the
past six years, she has run and contributed to a Christmas toy drive
benefiting Family Promise, an organization that helps house and
transition homeless families in her community.
“There is nothing more rewarding than knowing that I am changing the
lives of many children,” she said.
As part of Troop 46434, Tori also sells cookies to raise money in
support of various community service projects, such as donating
backpacks to community shelters, as well as educational trips, like a
recent visit to the local aquarium. This year, the girls also plan to
use some of their cookie earnings toward completing a Girl Scout Gold
When asked about her favorite part of participating in the Girl
Scout Cookie Program, Tori says she likes meeting new people and
learning social skills along the way. “We've met some really great
people who love to share their stories about their cookie-selling days
as well as their experiences in Girl Scouts,” she said.
Great work, Tori and Troop 46434! We’re so glad to hear you’re out
there learning and giving every chance you get. Your community is a
better place because you’re part of it!
