It's Girl Scout Cookie season, and one troop in Iowa is absolutely crushing it. Troop 64224 of Council Bluffs has sold more than 5,000 boxes of cookies, shattering its sales goal for the 2021 cookie selling season. And they've done it while living in an emergency shelter for the homeless.
The girls, who are between 5 and 8 years old, live in the Micah House shelter, and their troop membership changes based on who is living at the shelter at any given time. They've reached great cookie heights by using social media, and even fulfilled another goal of selling to customers in all 50 states, and Washington, D.C.
