Girl Scouts donate 20% of cookie sale to Remembering Wyatt Dale

They were outside the past two months standing outside of Wal-mart or United Supermarkets, walking neighborhoods pulling their wagon and at school or local business, but besides selling Girl Scout cookies they were raising money for a local water safety organization.

The local Graham Girl Scout Daisy/Brownie Troop #8513 began their annual cookie sale on Jan. 17, finishing their cookie season on March 1. Between the five Daisey/Brownie members they sold 3,357 boxes of cookies.

Before they started selling cookies, they pledged to donate 20% of their profits to Remembering Wyatt Dale Water Safety Awareness, and with their sales were able to present a check of $436.41 to co-founder Tracey Terasas.
