United Zion Retirement Community in Lititz recently received nearly 100 boxes of Girl Scout cookies for residents and employees caring for a high-risk population during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Troop 70246 was unable to set up their normal stand and sell cookies, so they asked friends and family to buy and donate the cookies to local retirement communities.
Troop 70246 is made up of sixth grade girls in Warwick School District.
Staff delivered the cookies, along with milk, to UZRC residents. This unexpected gift lifted spirits across campus.
United Zion Retirement Community residents and employees expressed their gratitude to Troop 70246 and praised their gesture as an example of “the type of selfless acts that highlight the strength of the American spirit, especially during hard times.”
