Girl Scout Cookies are an American icon. The annual Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls five important life skills including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. The cookie program also helps fund new adventures and life-changing opportunities for girls. Girl Scouts of Central Indiana provides Girl Scout Cookies to Indiana Blood Center as a way to say thank you to the many volunteer blood donors who help save lives every year.
“Blood donors know that cookies are always waiting for them after they’ve done their good deed, and who wouldn’t love a Thin Mint?” stated Deana Potterf, chief communications officer for Girl Scouts of Central Indiana . “Community service is at the core of Girl Scouts’ mission, so Thin Mint Thursday is a perfect partnership for our organization and the Indiana Blood Center.”
Indiana Blood Center must see 500 donors every day to meet the needs of hospital patients.
“Girl Scout Cookies are special and we love this opportunity to give them to our loyal donors. It also gives us a chance to showcase the Girl Scouts’ commitment to community service and leadership development,” s tated Andrea L. Fagan, director of public relations and marketing for Indiana Blood Center.
Girl Scouts’ Thin Mints is the number one selling Girl Scout Cookie in the nation. Indiana Blood Center is encouraging donors to make appointments due to the popularity of the cookies. To schedule an appointment for Thin Mint Thursday, visit donorpoint.org or call 800-532-4722.
