WALL, NJ - Junior Girl Scout Troop 1102 from Wall Township sold more than 165 boxes of cookies during the Annual Girl Scout Cookie Sale and, as part of the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore’s Gift of Caring program, the girls donated the boxes of cookies to the Navy. On March 24th, the girls were surprised by 10 active duty Navy sailors who accepted the cookies to take back to Lakehurst Naval Airbase. During the visit, the girls learned about what the Navy does, their jobs and responsibilities, and delivered the cookies right to their vehicle.

Due to its overwhelming success, the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore continued its “Gift of Caring” program this year where Girl Scouts can donate boxes of cookies to worthwhile causes. For more information on the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore, please visit www.girlscoutsjs.org.
