The Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay Service Unit 30 is composed of 20 troops in the Cape Region. The 20 troops with 183 scouts were presented a donation of ecofriendly, reusable shopping bags from County Bank at the cookie distribution site at Rogers Signs in Milton. A total of 1,956 cases of cookies will be distributed by local Girl Scouts this year.
The Girl Scouts of the USA 100th Anniversary Forever Green Pledge is a national effort of girls leading their families, schools and communities in improving the environment and protecting national resources. By providing thousands of ecofriendly bags, County Bank is supporting local Girl Scout troops and their Forever Green initiative in taking action to reduce waste and help make the local community a greener place.
“Learning leadership and entrepreneurial skills is vital to the development of our local youth. Their leadership can make an environmental difference, and with proud corporate partners like County Bank supporting their efforts, we can help make the community we live in a better place,” said County Bank Public Relations Officer Jason Moshier.
