After weeks of traveling to various sites across the nation to sell cookies in order to fund recreation programs, one might come to the conclusion that those affiliated with the Girls Scouts of the USA might be a bit tired of the sight of baked goods. That turned out not to be the case, however, for those in the Grove City-based Troops 5925 and 6154. Throughout the week of March 21, the girls and their troop leaders spent their free-time gathering supplies as they were on a mission to make hundreds of cookies, cakes and pies that were to be sold over the course of that weekend. Their goal was to raise $5,000 so they could donate those funds to Ignis Invictus, a non-profit that is helping to provide food and shelter to Ukrainian refugees fleeing the war. “They wanted to help in any way that they could,” said Jen Belt, troop leader of 6154. Pictured here displaying some of the assortment of cakes, cookies and pies that were on sale on March 25 are (from left to right) Anna Belt, Amara Young, Stevie Belt, and Emileigh Mason. They said troop members also plan to make and sell bracelets and other jewelry to continue donating to non-profit organizations that are helping Ukrainians resettle in other countries.
