I am skeptical of this story from the OP. If true, I am sure it would have received a lot of media attention. Not to mention, being banned from talking to the girl in your troupe? Seems a little odd. I didn’t find any articles retelling this claim, either. We, therefore, have to assume that the OP is a Girl Scouts insider and is using Facebook as a sort of WikiLeaks-don’t think so.
is this the same organization that came down on a girl a few years ago for setting up a website and selling the cookies, claiming it was an unfair advantage? this organization can eat a dick. if the cookies are sold for fundraising (they are), then they should be sold online all year long. haven’t bought any since that debacle. in regars to this specifically, #12 has got it right.
Obviously fake. They have already been donating unsold Girl Scout cookies to troops for at least a couple of years. I know this because I had to help them distribute donated boxes to my military unit back in 2011.
#18- There are several rules in place for cookie sales, in order to keep things fair. The girl broke the rules. You have to sell in person and during the given time. GSA does other fundraisers during the year. Cookies can still be sold throughout the year though, the troop has to buy them ahead of time though so not many troops do that.
#21- I’m a troop leader, have been for years, so I do in fact know what I’m talking about. There are several bakeries that make the cookies, what one bakery does with unsold cookies has nothing to do with the GSA.
